Season 2022: Weather update, starting bloom and tissue sampling

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Jeff Franklin, from AAFC Kentville, is without any doubts the best weather contributor bringing every week updates to understand how the growing season progresses and the comparison with previous years. Last week brought an important amount of rain and the temperatures decreased, which impacted vineyard activities. Despite that, the season has similarities with the previous one, 2021, in terms of phenological stages. Early Hybrids, such as Baco noir or Frontenac are starting bloom this week, depending on the area it might be possible to see this since the end of last week. While others, like Geisenheim or L’Acadie blanc are slightly behind and they might be starting at the end of this week or beginning of the next, again, it might depend on the area as well. On the other hand, vinifera varieties are still behind the hybrids, and they can start bloom at the end of next week or the beginning of the following one.
