Grow Tubes on Table Grapes – A Growing Trend!

Historically grow tubes have been used on wine grapes, and only very rarely on table grapes.  That is changing… fast!

Table grape growers are quickly realizing that grow tubes are not an expensive luxury item that makes sense only for higher value crops.  They are a cost-saving device that reduces labor costs and, more importantly, reduces the single largest cost all farmers face:  time.  As in the time from planting vines to picking that first big crop.

The latest in a long line of table grape growers who have adopted grow tubes and to take advantage of Wilson’s unbeatable pricing is in Mexico.  Think grow tubes don’t work in hot areas?  Check this out!
