Mitra System Evaluation

Early findings indicate use of the Mitra System may create more favourable conditions for grapevine root growth.

A collaborative project between the AgriPark, Tal-Ya Agriculture Solutions, Bridge Hub and the former National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, which is now part of the Gulbali Institute for Agriculture, Water and Environment Institute, was established to evaluate the use of polypropylene trays in grape vine establishment and growth in dry environments.

Dr Jason Smith says early findings are indicating use of the Tal-Ya Mitra Tray System has created more favourable conditions for root growth and function that may translate into further growth responses in subsequent seasons.
