Vinography Images: In The Mustard

In the Mustard
Mustard, a common signature of Spring vineyards in Napa may be pretty to look at, but it also plays a valuable role in viticulture, as do all cover crops. These crops, grown between the rows, compete with the vines for moisture and nutrients, which places an additional healthy stress on the vines and can cause them to ripen earlier. Mustard is often mown after it grows, or even turned under the soil, where it adds back nitrogen. — Alder Yarrow
