I am experimenting with mulching at the base of vines in a vineyard setting. The hardest part for me was actually figuring out what mulch to use as it needed to fit into several categories i.e availability, efficiency, cost, PH buffering, nitrogen binding vs. organic matter gained etc. Ended up using straw. CDFA requirements (its a part of a grant) indicate at least 2 inches thick. No issue with pests for the vines. I will know a lot more about water savings at the end of the year.
