Grapelink spray diaries

Grapelink spray diary snapshots

SWNZ uses the Grapelink programme to record foliar spay applications.

The first snapshot (faux site) is of a ‘Foliar application record’. This is what a SWNZ user/member would need to enter into Grapelink to create a full seasons Spray Diary. The spay diary records water rates, dates, block information, products used, equipment/sprayers, targets etc.

The second snapshot (faux site) is of a ‘Winery Declaration’. Once a member enters all of their spray applications, they can send a specific block’s declaration to their contracted Winery. This information details what has been spray/applied to a specific block.

Grapes arriving at a winery to be processed must be accompanied with a spray diary. There are certain mandatory time delays on various sprays used in a vineyard between use and processing.
