Straw Mulch Undervine
Have you ever wondered why vines don’t seem to respond to irrigation during extreme heat events? One of the biggest benefits of straw mulch is that it helps retain soil moisture. Vines with under-vine straw mulch cope with our increasing number of extreme heat events much better, as the feeder roots are kept at a more ambient temperature due to a cooler soil surface. As straw breaks down over time it improves soil structure and soil porosity allowing better water infiltration and less runoff. There is also a dramatic reduction of weed germination under-vine as most weeds are unable to penetrate the layer of straw. We are able to accurately quote and supply the highest quality straw and spread under-vine in your vineyard. You tell us which blocks you would like to mulch and we handle the rest. Why not allocate part of your vineyard to a mulching program and see the results for yourself.
