Post-Seeding the Winter Cover Crop - The Tractor Chronicles

by Peter Mathis on December 01, 2014

The rains have arrived in wine country! (We need it.) It's the perfect end to planting the winter cover crop. The rain will provide a healthy start to seed germination. 

In this episode of "The Tractor Chronicles" I show the planted section of block 800. Not every section of the vineyard receives the same cover crop. In this case, the area shown received a nitrogen fixing crop such as peas. Other parts of the vineyard don't require an extra dose of nitrogen. So those areas get a different seed "cocktail." Everything goes towards promote the healthiest crop possible, regardless of growing conditions.
