New Zealand’s own Glen Creasy has just released the 2nd edition of his must have book, GRAPES – Crop Production Science in Horticulture.
Fully revised with new content and full-colour figures throughout, the second edition of this successful book contains expanded content for all sections, particularly those covering the impact of climate change, seasonal management, mechanisation and organic management options.
In the new edition, there is a new vine balance section, as well as significant updates to root-stocks and grafting. It includes information on wine grapes in addition to grapes for fresh consumption and raisin production.
Covering a broad range of topics from grapevine growth and fruit development, to vineyard establishment, mechanization and post-harvest processing, this book provides historical and current information about the grape industry and sets out the theory and science behind production practices.
It is an invaluable resource for grape producers, horticulture and plant science students, as well as enthusiasts of the vine and its products.
’Creasy and Creasy’ is the ‘go to’ reference on my bookshelf when I am searching for thoughts on current production systems. Given the authors’ experience, there is good awareness of viticultural practices in different climate zones… I trust readers will find as much benefit and enjoyment with this updated volume as I found with the first.’ – Dr. Richard Smart, ‘the flying vine-doctor’, Cornwall, UK
Suitable for grape producers and winemakers, as well as students of horticulture and viticulture.
