Covercrop of the Year?


This is Prosper Tall Fescue - a strain of mediterranean fescue grass - which has grown 120cm high. Is it the covercrop of the year? We think it is close.

This has been used to de-vigour this vineyard. Note the use of sacrificial canes as another tool to try and slow the vines down.

wow! I think the dry start to the year (stored water reduced) will really slow those vines down!
