Exsa offers a comprehensive technical production extension service to all the Exsa growers. The team provide advice and training on all production issues, from pruning right through the growth cycle until the grapes are harvested. This includes planting methods as well as the crop preparation for various grape varieties. The service also evaluates the growth of the vineyards and makes recommendations on fertigation.
The service is available to all the Exsa growers throughout and despite the vast distances between production areas, the technical manager visits each of the growers on their farms as growers request assistance. During the harvest season the technical service includes quality control in packhouses during the packing process. This also entails managing the packing programmes for various markets as well as deciding on the market destinations for the crops from selected vineyard blocks.
