Organic Weed Management
it is the grower’s task to make sure that the weeds present do not exceed damaging thresholds that limit crop yields. In this chapter, we will address practical weed management techniques for the organic producer.
Weed management for organic crop production falls into two categories: cultural weed control and mechanical weed control. A third type of weed control using chemicals is another option, but will not be discussed in this manual as organic herbicides are not commonly used on a large scale in agronomic crops.
