Controlling weeds mechanically and using herbicide

Loire wine tours education

A picture that I took this morning while walking through the vineyards. Spot the difference between the 2 parcels of vines? One has been worked mechanically and one has used glyphosate to control the weeds. I know which one looks healthier!

Glyphosate is regularly used in the vineyards to control weeds and is not controlled by appellation law in Vouvray but it is forbidden in organic viticulture.

We regularly take a walk in the vineyards as part of our Loire Wine Discovery day.
