Two Chardonnay vineyards - 14 days difference.

The most advanced Chardonnay vineyards (Left) are around the 1-2 leaf stage (EL 7-8), whilst late pruned vineyards (Right) are only at Bud-swell to Green-tip (EL 5).

It is worthwhile planning an early spray round for Powdery Mildew in vineyards that had the disease last season. This is likely to be due in 14 days for early Chardonnay vineyards.
