Successful weed management can seem like an uphill battle, especially for organic farms. Learning about the basic principles and available tools for precise mechanical weed control is the key to creating a comprehensive plan that not only combats unwanted plants but also promotes responsible land stewardship. Hosted by The Land Connection and PrairiErth Farm in Illinois, the 2nd annual Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day brought together farmers, soil scientists, and industry experts to explore a variety of weeding equipment and techniques that increase efficiency while preserving the health of the soil. This learning opportunity provided farmers with hands-on experience and a deeper understanding of how these innovative tools from top manufacturers can boost productivity on their own farms.
