Assessing your own level of knowledge and taking steps to educate yourself in areas where you are lacking is a critical activity. If you are experienced in commercial fruit production, you may understand many of the relevant issues, but still need to learn how to manage grapes as a crop, as well as market the fruit. If you have little or no experience in production agriculture you may also need to learn about regulatory issues, labor issues, marketing, and crop management.
