Integrated Weed Management, using cover crops and strip-till (6 minutes)
Agronomists, Dr Pieter Van Nieuwenhuyse and Marc Hinderager, discuss the outcomes from a case study carried out on a pumpkin farm in Bathurst, NSW.
You will hear how inter-row ground cover may assist you in suppressing weeds and a more integrated approach, using cover crops and strip-till, might help you reduce the use of herbicides and, by not disturbing the soil, better water infiltration rates and moisture retention will result.
