Grapevine rootstocks have been an essential component of grape growing for over 130 years as rootstocks can impart desirable characteristics for grapevine growth.

This travel grant funded a period of research on bunch rots at North Carolina State University and an associated study of viticulture practices in North Carolina.
Physiological changes and carbohydrates dynamics of Chardonnay grapevines affected by reduced irrigation and recovering regimes
The aims of this travel were to present results obtained from the Wine Australia funded project "UA 08/03" on grapevine physiology and carbon economies under severe water stress and on resilience capacity of grapevines in recovery from severe water stress at the 17th International Symposium, GiESCO 2011 held in Asti and Alba (Italy) and to obtain feedback and establish networks/collaborations with the networks/collaborations with the international scientific community at the 17th International Symposium, GiESCO 2011 held in Asti (Italy)
This project sought to provide a better understanding of the potential influence of yeast and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in fermentation and the resulting wine.
This project partially financed a trip to Italy mainly to attend a conference in Volterra (8th International Workshop on Sap Flow sensors). After the conference, trips were made to Padova, Legnaro and Conegliano to visit researchers and The University of Padova.
Present and attend the 17th International Giesco Symposium and academic tour of universities, vineyards and wineries in Northern Italy
Dr Cassandra Collins presented a paper entitled "Grapevine reproductive performance in a hotter climate" at the 17th International GiESCO Symposium, Asti Italy.
This project provided assistance to contribute to the costs of bringing Mr Antonio Graça (Director R & D, Sogrape Vinhos, Portugal)to Australia.
Climate projections for various climatic variables have been calculated for Australia and for selected regions globally. A warming climate is projected for all sites and this varies by region and seasonally. Projections for rainfall vary with most regions likely to have a drier future, while a few are likely to get wetter.
Adoption of rootstocks suited to the Australian environment will be critical to the long-term sustainability of the Australian wine industry to offer protection against Australian bio-types of soil borne pests, reduce the impacts of high potassium soils, limited water supply, salinity, and enhance wine quality attributes.
This project extends our knowledge about the use of rootstocks in the Limestone Coast and the Riverland.
