Weeds. We’ve all got them. Weeds are often considered the organic grower’s biggest challenge as they compete with crops for nutrients, light and water. Ecological weed management begins with careful planning of the cropping system to minimize weed problems, and seeks to utilize biological and ecological processes in the field and throughout the farm ecosystem to give crops the advantage over weeds. In addition, mechanical and other control measures are usually needed to protect organic crops from the adverse effects of weeds. And while some folks turn to dangerous chemicals, many weeds are actually resistant to herbicides and respond better to different methods of control. Weed control is always a challenge. Pulling weeds out by the roots is the best way to eliminate them in an organic garden. It gets the job done with no chemicals and no drama. Yet with our busy lives filled with too much work and not enough relaxation, staying on top of the weeds is difficult, and it doesn’t take long at all for the weeds to get out of control. Below are a few quick garden hacks for eliminating weeds without heavy chemicals. With these simple weed control tips in your gardening arsenal, weeds won’t stand a chance!
