By understanding the reproductive biology of grapevines, one can more effectively predict yield and regulate the growing of grapevines. Yield prediction is important as it has huge impact in the production of wine.

Professionally regulate the growing of grapevines may involve manipulations of which one of the ultimate goals is to improve berry quality.

Dr. Greg Dunn has conducted research in both areas as well as plant water relations in perennial horticultural crops.

Dr. Dunn has also heavily involved in the following projects and consultancies:

  • GWRDC & DPI funded project 'Crop regulation for improved wine quality and reduced industry costs' (2003-2006).
  • CRCV funded project 'Accelerating the adoption of precision viticulture through participatory trials' (2004-2006).
  • HAL, industry and DPI funded project 'Sweeter summer fruit' (2004 –2007).
  • GWRDC, CSIRO & DPI project 'Crop control for consistent supply of quality fruit' (2000 –2003).
  • IDC (Greater Victoria Winegrapes) funded project 'Improving wine quality and vineyard efficiency by yield regulation' (2003-2004).
  • IDC (Greater Victoria Winegrapes) funded project 'Crop forecasting extension and research across Greater Victoria' (2002-2003).
  • IDC (Greater Victoria Winegrapes) funded project 'Improving bunch weight prediction in yield forecasting' (2001-2002).
