Abstract
  • The Willamette valley has grown to be an important source of high quality grapes for the production of wine. These grapes are a very high value crop that has proven to be profitable in this region. Irrigation of this crop has been limited largely to the establishment stage, with most of the mature acreage being grown based on native rainfall. While this strategy has been successful in certain soils in most years, it has lead to relatively low productivity in terms of yield per acre, severely limited the range of soils suitable for wine grapes, and results in unnecessary variable quality based on the precipitation and temperature patterns of a given year. This represents an unacceptable loss of productivity and land resources to wine grape production.
