Davenport Orchards and Winery

For 15 years, Davenport Orchards and Winery owner Greg Shipe has been working to reduce the amount of herbicide sprayed in the late spring and early fall. Sensitive crops, like the grapes Shipe grows, can be badly damaged when herbicides sprayed in nearby fields drift over onto other plants.

Greg Shipe, owner of Davenport Winery in Eudora, is hoping to educate more people about the negative effects of spraying noxious weeds with herbicides at the wrong time of year. The herbicide vapors can travel for miles, damaging sensitive crops, such as grapes in nearby fields.
