    Thank You very much in the south with the rain weeds grow better than vines. I want to avoid spraying every month or so.

    I use Gramoxone, with my preemergent it works well....and is relatively safe for the vines....however it's only a burn down....and does not kill roots..
    Otherwise Glyphosate....

    I plant lawn grass. Mow between my rows. Weed wack around my vines and posts. I need to weed wack it once every 3-4 weeks. Takes about 15 minutes for 25 vines. I don’t think I’d mess with chemicals unless I had acres planted and it was my only choice.

    I use glyphosate judicially to maintain weed control. I did try Avenger Weed Killer Concentrate For Organic Gardening this year (citrus oil based) and the results were less than I had hoped for. I did see a recipe using vinegar and Epsom salt, but would like to find some research on this and grapes. Adding Epsom salt to the soil may or may not be what I desire and would need to consult my friend (Dr. Dirt) on this. Burn down would be preferable at times (like now) vs a systemic approach (Roundup).
