Description: The Lodi Winegrape Commission, E. & J. Gallo, and Trinchero Family Estates are co-hosting a field day focusing on how to identify our main local noxious weeds, weed physiology – noting the critical life stages for weed management, and weed management technologies aimed at reducing herbicide use, lowering cost, and/or increasing effectiveness and efficiency. We’ll have a general discussion on weed management followed by time in the vineyard where seasoned viticulturists lead small groups in weed identification. There will also be an equipment demonstration (including AgriTech’s WeedIt precision sprayer) and a professional horticultural display of preserved weeds created by Dawson Lewis of Starr & Storm Crop Solutions.
