    Since glyphosate is getting to be banned for use because of court battles. What are you using in place to keep the ground weed free under your vines. Thanks

    Early spring glyco, Casoron keeps it that way. An old fashioned hoe for the stray weed.

    Glyphosate isn't going anywhere.......the EPA and most Non Californian scientists are not on the lawsuit bandwagon......

    I use a glufosinate based herbicide. It works as well as glyphosate but is not systemic. So if you hit a grape leaf, it only kills that leaf, and does not affect the rest of the vine.
