The viticulture and winemaking capacity of the Waite is set to grow with an expansion of the University of Adelaide’s Coombe vineyard now underway. An additional 0.75 hectares under grapevine cultivation will increase fruit availability for teaching and research, and increase stocks of later ripening varieties. Incorporation of new vineyard technologies means the latest in […]

Soil salinity severely impacts crop growth and yield. Within minutes of exposure to salt, cell expansion, leaf expansion, photosynthesis, transpiration and tillering are reduced. When salts accumulate to toxic concentrations in the shoot, especially in older leaves, a secondary inhibition of growth occurs through damage to the plant’s metabolism and ion imbalances. These effects occur […]
