Best paper of the year award by the Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology

We are excited to announce that our 2022 paper ” Assessing the Short-Term Effects of No-Till on Crop Yield, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Soil C and N Pools in a Cover-Cropped, Biodynamic Mediterranean Vineyard was selected as the winner of the 2023 ASVO Viticulture Paper of the Year Award. Our paper was chosen by a panel of industry experts from research papers in the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research. This award honours outstanding researchers where the potential application of their research to industry is deemed the most significant.

We are grateful to the ASVO for this recognition. This award gives a true purpose to the many hours spent in the field, analyzing samples, and data.

We would like to thank our industry collaborator in this work, Tablas Creek, and many other producers throughout the world, for pushing the envelope leading the charge on regenerative practices and redefining the meaning of success in the wine industry.

Thank you to the Healthy Soils Program of the California Department of Food and Agriculture for supporting our work. By supporting these unique partnerships between growers and researchers, this funding has helped advance our understanding of the potential of soils to mitigate the climate crisis under real life, commercial-scale conditions. This funding has also supported several early career scientists many of us from underrepresented groups.
