Topic Notes

Ever wonder how much it would cost to implement a new sustainable practice? Or how to calculate your Return on Investment?

The California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance worked with ag economists to develop new tools to help users evaluate the costs and benefits of practices to help guide decisions about potential management changes.

Tools include: Vineyard Sustainable Water Management, Trunk Disease Management, Sprayer Decision Tools, Dust Mitigation Methods Comparison Tool, Winery Water Use, Winery Solid Waste Audits, Certification Cost/Benefit Evaluation Tool

The webinar will cover how to use these new tools to be able to assess the costs and benefits of sustainable practice adoption.
