Cavaillon

The cavaillon is the 20 to 30 cm wide strip on each side of the vine row.

It is easy to weed the inter-row with tools such as mowers, discs and rotavators.

The maintenance of the cavaillon is more complicated in organic farming: we use mechanical tools such as interceps, disk weeders, Kress weeders, herbanet, etc. These tools require experienced drivers and the working speeds are relatively low, from 2.5 to 4 km/h depending on the work.

When there is still grass around the foot, there is only one solution: manual intervention with a spade…

The key word is anticipation. Above all, do not let the grass take over, otherwise it will become complicated very quickly!
