Effect of Vineyard Row Orientation on Growth and Phenology of Gly Susceptible Horseweed (Conyza canadensis)
Marisa Alcorta, Matthew W. Fidelibus, Kerri L. Steenwerth, and Anil Shrestha*

Horseweed has become increasingly common and difficult to control in San Joaq evolution of glyphosate resistance. The development of weed-suppressive viney spacing, and row orientation combine to cast dense shade on the weed canopy relevance of such a system to horseweed, which can grow to be as tall, or taller, uncertain. Also unknown is whether a glyphosate-resistant (GR) biotype and glyp perform similarly under such conditions. Therefore, we compared the growth and biotypes (GR and GS) in vinerows oriented eastwest (EW) and northsouth (NS penetration to the WCZ than NS rows throughout the study, and horseweed bioty producing leaves with larger specific leaf area and leaf area ratios than those in dry weight of the horseweed plants in the EW rows was reduced by 30% compar Leaf number was also reduced in the horseweed plants in the EW rows, but only not affect phenological development or the number of seeds produced by the GR budded, flowered, and set seed approximately 1 wk earlier than the GS biotype. vinerows reduced horseweed growth, but not fecundity, and the GR biotype reac GS biotype.
