Post Freeze report: Nova Scotia Wine Grape Initial Impact Assessment

Wednesday, February 22, 2023

At the beginning of February Nova Scotia was widely hit by a freeze event, having some differences in a couple places, and damaging many crops, including grapevines. In the case of vineyards many factors played a role on their damage, such as the historically warm start of winter, and the impact on the bud acclimation, which effected hybrids and Vitis vinifera in different ways.

  • Did you know the difference between winter advective freeze and winter inversion event?
  • Did you know that December 2022 and January 2023 have been the warmest on record?
  • How can the warm temperatures impact bud acclimatation?
  • Which is the bud viability of primary and secondary buds in Vitis vinifera and hybrids?

All this information and more can be found in the following article.
