Nitrogen (N) is an essential macronutrient for vine health, as well as grape and wine quality. Vine N status is most commonly obtained through petiole sampling and elemental analysis for nitrogen concentration. However, this method is expensive, destructive and labor intensive. Therefore, a rapid and simpler method of estimating vine nitrogen status would be advantageous.
