Cover Crop information map

Do cover crops stabilize wine grape productivity in a variable climate?

Vegetative groundcover (also referred to as cover crop) may be planted in perennial fruit and nut systems for a variety of ecological or production goals, including growth reduction in humid climate vineyards. While growth reductions are presumed to be greater in young vines due to less developed root systems, studies have not examined if growth and mechanisms of competition depend on rootstock vigor.
