Weed the Soil, Not the Crop: A Whole Farm Approach to Weed Management

by Anne & Eric Nordell

• The Nordells have compiled a series of articles written for The Small Farmers Journal (OR) into a softcover booklet that describes a bioextensive system for weed management. Topics focus on the relationship between rotations, nutrient management and weed pressure. The concepts are illustrated with many photos, graphs, charts and sketches, making this an interesting booklet to read.
• Using horse-drawn implements on their six-acre market garden in Trout Run, PA, Anne and Eric Nordell provide restaurants, supermarkets and a Williamsport, PA farmers market with produce. They practice cover cropping, bare fallow periods, rotation and shallow tillage to raise weed-free vegetables on their Beech Grove Farm.
