10: Vineyard Weed Management
Weeds can compete with young vines and are hosts for some vineyard pests. Grant Cremers describes how he controls weeds through a combination of under-vine cultivation and herbicides at San Bernabe Vineyards. Topics include herbicide resistant weeds, reasons to avoid pre-emergent herbicides, cover crops for weed suppression, and the benefits of controlling weeds mechanically.
