Grape Regions And Their Determinants

Happily, the grape in its great diversity of forms accommodates itself

to many conditions, so that some variety of the several cultivated

species will produce fruit for home use, if not as a market commodity,

in every part of America adapted to general agriculture. But

commercial grape-growing on this continent is confined to a few

regions, in each of which it is profitable only in ideal situations.

In fact, few other agricultural industries are more definitely

determined by environment than the grape-industry. Where are the grape

regions of America? What determines the suitability of a region for

grape-growing? Answers to these questions furnish clews to the culture

of this fruit and help in estimating the potentialities of a new

region or of a location for grape-growing.
