The Latest on Weeding

Recommended Posts

Hi all… what are your feelings toward the latest in weeding?  Some experts are recommending use of a Dutch or Hula hoe, slicing off the tops of the weeds in order to leave the soil as undisturbed as possible.

It probably would depend on the crop. Some would like to be aerated especially on heavy clay soil. Used to have a great sharp hula hoe that would slice up the coming weeds but that wouldn't work for things like quackgrass or bindweed and some other noxious characters. I think the best advice about weeding is to get at it on a regular basis trying not to let any set seed and become a nuisance in the coming years. And remember a good layer of mulch will help too.
