10% Greentip EL 04 - UPDATE 20/8/2008

Budswell to Greentip

Bud Burst Begins

Chardonnay in McLaren Vale will be at 10% Greentip on or about the 24th of August. Adelaide Hills vineyards still have 2-4 weeks until bud movement. Greentip in Chardonnay is the trigger for Rust Mite movement. 

10% Greentip also signals the end of using 2% Canola Oil for Scale Control.

The negative is when Greentip occurs it also is the signal for when vines can be affected by frost and hail damage.
