Abstract
  • This study was initiated in its original form in 1982 with the Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District and the McMinnville Field Office of the USDA-Soil Conservation Service. The Soils Department, Oregon State University, was one of several cooperators, in part funded by The Wine Advisory Board. In 1984 and again in 1985, water use by grapevines and by a few associated cover crops in each of three vineyards was measured using the neutron probe method. Access tubes are permanently installed at monitoring sites and the neutron probe is lowered into the tubes for measurements at various depths at weekly to ten-day intervals. Water use is calculated by the difference between the final and the initial soil profile water contents plus rainfall occurring during the measurement season. Cover crops are recommended for vineyards because they provide certain advantages, but there are also disadvantages, or possible hazards.
