Hot Off The Press: Vineyard Management Plan Template

Hot Off the Press: Vineyard Management Plan Template

Body: 

Built from the Sustainable Winegrowing BC Vineyard Standard the template provides an easier to use framework. The framework outlines all aspects to be included in a VMP, such as: Conservation, Erosion Control, Nutrient Management, Integrated Pest Management, Water Efficiency, Health and Safety, and Succession planning. The details about information and data requirements for each goal area are within. The Template was a focus of conversation at the March 8th Insight Conference. If you'd like to hear about it, follow this link to access the recording.
The VMP Template and all the tools and resources SWBC has available are at Sustainable Winegrowing BC and click the Resources tab.
Thank you to the working group which assisted with its content; Felix Egerer, Benoit Gauthier, Marina Knutson, Heidi Larch, Severine Pinte, and Carl Withler. The VMP Template, we hope, will be a very useful tool for those interested in implementing sustainability practices and seeking certification.
