On-Farm Research

Most vineyard managers are also technology researchers as they modify and observe how changes in their vineyard management changes vine growth and fruit quality.  However, not all changes in management necessarily result in the changes observed by the manager.  Dr. Anamosa draws upon his 15 years in international agricultural development in Africa as a soil science researcher and research manager to help growers set up and evaluate simple reliable experiments in the field.  He can guide the grower to set clear objectives of the experiment, and guide the manager as to how to set up the field logistics, how and what parameters to measure and quantify, and how to assess the impact of the experiment using simple statistical methods.
