Grape Data Tool, Examples and Tutorials

The Grape Data Tool is my most popular public resources.  It distills every Acreage and Crush Report since 1991 into a single Excel workbook with a quick and easy interface.  I have also added a variety of tools to make it easy to pull out a great deal of derivative data.  It saves me hundreds of hours of work every year.  I hope it does the same for you and increases the use of USDA data in our industry.  I have also created various video case study tutorials to show how to best use this tool. 

Its use is governed by the Free Software Foundation's General Public License.  The most recent, fully-enabled, 2017 version is availableDOWNLOAD THE TOOL HERE: download link.  If you'd like to have this emailed to you each year or if you have trouble downloading it, please e-mail me and I will send you the latest version and also add you to my mailing list for new releases (I will only e-mail you with Grape Data Tool updates, nothing else).

Note that this is a big file and may take a bit to download.  If you run into glitches with the tool please let me know

Below are the links to all of my video tutorials for the Grape Data Tool.  Just right click the links below and select "download link."  I will, now and again, be adding more.
