WEEDS.....what weeds? This is the 1st year that I've used roundup for the whole plant....all 3 of them. The instructions called for a 70:1 dilution and a neighboring farmer told that 100:1 dilution works just as well. As you can see things are looking pretty good after my 3rd application. I still pull weeds when I'm burying vines. I think I have every weed hoe made and then some and use them all. Some stats of the plants with roundup. Each plant has a thousand sq ft and is the earliest to fill the space....all 3 plants. So it would seem that roundup hasn't stunted the growth of the plants. My largest kin is 916 lbs on DAP 49. That's better than my average at this time of year. One other fun fact is that I always have a very heavy infestation of powdery mildew. This year so far I have none and the leaves are the best looking leaves for this date in my patch ever!!
