Wednesday, January 26, 2022

In this publication Dr. Harrison Wright and Jeff Franklin are sharing two interesting articles. Also, it’s important to highlight that in the early hours of January 22nd, we recorded a low temperature of -22.4 °C at the Kentville Research Centre and -26.5 °C at CFB Greenwood. More information about it in the bud hardiness report 6!

The first article is titled ‘Nova Scotia Wine Grapes: Will a Changing Climate Mean a Change in Spring Frost Risk?’. This interesting article analyzes how the climate changes have impacted grape growing in our region the last couple of years and shows an interesting historical weather analysis of Kentville (1913 – 2021). You can find information about frost events, growing degree days and bud burst modelling, among other details in this article.
