Dr. Skinkis' research program focuses on whole plant physiology studies that are designed to understand vine vegetative vigor management, physiology of vine balance, and vineyard management impacts on fruit composition and wine quality. Her research also includes work on yield management, fine-tuning canopy management methods, fruitfulness, sustainable viticulture production, and understanding production factors that drive implementation of vineyard management practices.  As Extension Specialist, Patty develops educational programs and informational publications for the Oregon industry statewide. Some of her outreach efforts include bringing industry members together in technical groups to allow information exchange between university and industry on new research results and innovations.
