Greening Waipara is the most substantive research project in the field in Waipara Valley at present. There are over 30 vineyards in the Waipara Valley involved in this project and they all individually are to be commended on their foresight in taking part in this project. Also Steve Wratten and his team must be included in this commendation for their ability to bring the wineries with them - it is their infectious enthusiasm and "never take no for an answer" approach for this project which has encouraged us all. This is real research, a project in action, in the field.
Some of the work of Steve and his team is held in the files which follow, there are links to other research sites on this project and at the bottom of the page are photos of the project. Each link opens a file in a new window. Thank you to Steve and his team for producing this material for us.
