SpecTerra Imagery for Precision Viticulture

Acquired from flowering to the onset of veraison, SpecTerra Imagery is a highly practical, efficient and profitable tool widely used by viticulturists for:

  • The application of strategic canopy management techniques
  • A greater understanding of irrigation and fertiliser requirements
  • Yield forecasting for logistics planning
  • Zonal harvesting in accordance to fruit quality for greater homogeneity of outputs
  • Overall environmental  and economic viability

SpecTerra has been working in partnership with the Australian wine industry since the early outset of Precision Viticulture to pioneer high-quality, reliable and cost-effective applications of remote sensing data.
