The “Vineyard Canopy Management Series” of Extension circulars reviews a number of canopy-management practices individually. Each circular advises how to effectively implement a canopy-management practice and why it is important to do so. The practices collectively known as “canopy management” aim to maximize canopy leaf exposure, maintain crop yield and quality, decrease disease, and improve vineyard health and sustainability. Though labor-intensive, canopy management should not be considered optional if the goal is annual production of high-quality grapes and wines.
