Technology behind the test

  • There are numerous changes in gene activity during late winter/early spring
  • These changes are correlated to the effect of differently timed budbreak treatments
  • Monitoring the relevant genes will provide you with the physiological status of your vines
  • The test has been developed in different regions across New Zealand
