Integrated Pest Management Concepts for Weeds in Organic Farming Systems

4.5
Average: 4.5 (2 votes)
Your rating: None

 
 
The authors address barriers to adoption of IWM, including farmer perception of higher risk, insufficient research verifying reduced costs and risks under good IWM, and lack of government and industry support for this approach. They recommend research and development of decision support systems that base herbicide recommendations on “weed density thresholds” and relative developmental stages of weed and crop. For organic growers, they cite “a need for weed management decision support tools for mechanical control practices".

Weed Management in Strawberries

4
Average: 4 (2 votes)
Your rating: None


The strawberry plant is shallow rooted and is a poor competitor against weeds for sunlight (for growth and fl ower buds), nutrients, and moisture. Weeds can reduce yields up to 40% or more. Harvesting fruit by hand presents a challenge when weeds are present. Where customers pick their own berries, weed-free fi elds are important for repeated sales and customer satisfaction.
