Assistant Professor Rachael Garrett and her colleagues have published “Ecological and Economic Benefits and Challenges for Integrating Sheep into Viticulture Production” in Agronomy for Sustainable Development. “Viticulture expansion has led to significant land use change in recent years and new environmental challenges, particularly with respect to herbicide use,” the authors argue. “Sheep integration into vineyards offers the potential to utilize the synergies of both systems to reduce external inputs, promote soil health, and increase farmer profit.”
