Irrigation and Nitrogen Management Plan Reporting Tool


Available within the Sustainable Winegrowing Program (SWP) Online Assessment System, the tool assists winegrowers within the Central Valley (where 60% of California winegrapes are grown) with compliance with the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program. Winegrowers can use the tool to record and track their nitrogen and water use in the vineyard and fulfill regulatory reporting requirements. See the handout to learn more.

Climate Smart Winegrowing: A Roadmap to Address Climate Challenges and Build Resiliency


The CSWA Climate Smart Report is a customized report available within the SWP Online Assessment System that enables winegrowers to see how their current sustainable practices align with climate smart practices (i.e. practices that increase carbon sequestration, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help adapt to a changing climate). The companion educational handout provides background on the report and summarizes why the 71 sustainability practices included in the report relate to climate change mitigation and adaptation. See the handout to learn more.
