Getting the full benefit of Vineyard cover crops - WineSkills Masterclass

Getting the full benefit of cover crops: How they can be used to improve production practices and reduce herbicide input.

Cover crops, either resident vegetation or selected species, are largely used in vineyards for multiple purposes including soil conservation, weed management, control of grapevine vegetative growth through competition for soil resources, and improvement of wine sensory characteristics.


This workshop explores potential benefits and drawbacks of cover crops on the vineyard ecosystem, vine vegetative growth, yield components, fruit composition, and wine quality.
This course is a combination of lectures, discussion, and experiential learning activities which are designed to assist wine grape growers to make informed groundcover management decisions.
