The third installment of the Crop Science Horticulture Education Series, “Weed Management in Grapes,” took place Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014 with Western Fruit Grower. The webinar discussed how to control weeds, even resistant types, in wine grapes.
The webinar was led by John Roncoroni, weed science farm advisor at University of California Cooperative Extension. Nevada Smith, Herbicide product manager at Crop Science, also joined the webinar to answer questions about how Alion® helps growers manage difficult weeds in wine grapes. As part of the hour-long webinar, Roncoroni discussed different types of weeds, including both old and new varieties, and the best time of year to treat for weeds. He also compared weed control practices and discussed the differences between herbicide resistance and herbicide tolerance.
