Tilling, Organic Weed Control [video]

Restoration Seeds' farm 1949 Allis Chalmers G with Buddign Basket Weeder.

For gardeners and small market farmers - Organic standards prohibit the use of synthetic herbicides but allow a range of physical tools and natural herbicides as elements of an integrated organic seed management program. These are usually used with cultural controls such as crop rotation and cover cropping.

SMALL FARM SCALE - Weed Control Machines

Two types of cultivators are required for effective weed control: one at pre-emergence or early post-emergence and a second later in the season. How vulnerable the crops are depends on their growth stage. Cultivation is only one element of effective weed control. Here is a good series of videos from the University of Vermont Extension - University of Vermont Center for Sustainable Agriculture plus one or two others we like.
