DJ’S GROWERS ADVISES GROWERS TO TAKE THIS WITH A ‘GRAIN OF SALT’

IN THE ADELAIDE HILLS - VINEYARD CANOPIES ARE VERY SMALL AND BORDERLINE FOR HOSTING DOWNY MILDEW. THEY SHOULD DRY QUICKLY COMPARED TO A LARGE CANOPY LATER IN THE SEASON.

IN MCLAREN VALE – WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE LIKELY TO BE LESS WET THAN THOSE FORECAST FOR THE ADELAIDE HILLS.

WE WILL ADVISE WHAT HAPPENS FROM THIS RAIN EVENT.
