Oregon wine supply company cites 'accidental drift,' halts sales of certain herbicides

June 19, 2014

A major vineyard supply company in the heart of Oregon's commercial wine country has announced that it will immediately halt sales of certain herbicides most commonly associated with accidental drift. Oregon Vineyard Supply, based in McMinnville, said the decision stems from reports by a number of specialty-crop growers of multiple-year damage from so-called growth regulator herbicides applied on neighboring farms.
