Revitalizing Winery Wastewater in the Vineyard by Cover Cropping

Amidst the current drought, growers can use all the water they can get, and recycling winery wastewater back into the vineyard would seem like a nice idea — except that water from the wineries are generally high in salts/chlorides, which would prove detrimental to soil health… unless certain cover crops planted down vineyard rows could remove the unwanted additives. Watch this brief video with Kristy Sun from the Dept. of Viticulture & Enology at Fresno State as she explains, and read more about it in American Vineyard Magazine.
