Time of Application Treatment Remarks
Second week of June Control weeds in vine row.  In second week of June, mound soil 8-12 inches high around base of trunk, extending 2-3 feet from trunk crown. Pull mound down in fall or spring. During July and August, maintain weed free strip in vine row.
Only necessary where grape root borer has been a problem.  Weed control near vine will cause larval mortality before caterpillars reach roots.
