GrapeFACE Q9. Independent site?

9) Do you think it is important to establish an independent site (not maintained by a commercial grower) of established or establishing vines for FACE? Should this be close to a research cluster?

    In my opinion, anything of a significant scale/cost has to be in a
    commercial vineyard on mature vines under commercial management.
    Otherwise it will be of limited use even if it is feeding into a
    mechanistic model that can be applied across other varieties/regions.
    This means, the mechanism used would have to allow tractors
    past/spraying/mechanical harvesting etc. As such, I’m not sure that
    the existing ‘linear FACE’ idea would work.
