estimations are key to achieving these target yields. In the past, for hand farming, cluster weights were used in combination with cluster counts to estimate final crop load. However, this method does not work well on machine-pruned vines ( Pool et al., 1996

. Average cluster weight was calculated by dividing fruit yield by the number of clusters harvested. Before harvest, a 100-berry sample was collected from each plot, weighed, and average berry weight determined. The berries were then crushed by hand and a 5
