Vineyard Organics - 20 Jul 15

As part of our ongoing transition to organic practices we need to control weeds under the vines. In modern times weed spraying with a glyphosate weed killer has been popular. These weed killers neutralise in the soil and in theory only effect the plants that are sprayed but the picture is more complicated than that. The soils become hard and impervious over time and micro organisms find it hard to thrive under these conditions. We started transitioning to using an undervine weeder at Domain Road and the first part of that is turning the soil over to mound up under the vines. Check it out on this youtube link.
