High vigor levels of primed seeds or foliar applied plants provide energetic start for earlier emergence and complete other phenological events well in time (Rehman et al.
If the phenological changes in a species are not at the same pace as the climatic shifts it will lead to a mistiming of several seasonal activities [19].
At this developmental stage of the plant phenological stages, the occurrence of pest species is more intense, especially Lepidoptera larvae, Coleoptera (weevils), Hemiptera (bugs) and Acari (mites) (Marur & Ruano, 2003).

This is based on an underlying assumption that shoots on the same grapevine are phenologically autonomous, meaning that the phenological development of a shoot (or cluster) on a grapevine is not influenced by the phenology status of other shoots.
My research objectives were to determine (1) whether flowering and fruiting times of Arctic plants in Nunavut, Canada, are changing with climate change, (2) the phenological temperature-sensitivity of Nunavut Arctic plants, and (3) how the climate in Nunavut is changing.
