Financial comparison for replanting


supervine comparison


Most vineyards have dead or missing vines and it is not uncommon to see 2-5% gaps in a block. At these levels the loss of income would be between $400 - $1,250 per hectare per annum (conservatively). 

The cost of doing nothing is compounding each year the vine is missing.

A traditional dormant vine planted amongst mature vines often take 5 years or more to carry a full crop. This presents a loss of between $32 - $40 per vine in fruit income, per year until fully established.

The SuperVine on the other hand will start having a half crop in year 2, and be in full production by year 3.

Planting a traditional vine in a replant situation has a high failure rate and/or high individual management costs, which have not been accounted for in the above graph. SuperVines however, have a large rootmass and strong fruiting cane, which is laid straight onto the existing wire. The SuperVine can be treated the same as exisiting established vines in management, irrigation and pruning.
