Sustainability : Meet the weeds

We want to stop herbicides.

Instead we plough with the tractor to remove weeds.

But we also weed manually when needed.

We use a hoe and sometimes our hands.

These are the weeds we try to limit.

The bindweeds climb in the vines, thus makes it possible for humidity to have an easier access thus supporting the risk of fungus disease.

This plant has very long roots, and once you break a root, it will spread even more underground.

The thistle spreads a lot as well. The main problem is the thorns that are quite unpleasant as we work, sometimes seated, in the rows at the time of harvest.
