Non-chemical production of winter oilseed rape can create increased weed pressure, compromising yield.
This tool covers inter-row cultivation as a strategy for managing weeds in winter-oilseed rape.
This E-learning unit provides information on non-chemical weed control for winter oilseed rape. The presentation suggests inter-row cultivation as a weeding strategy for this crop. The tool is a powerpoint presentation that goes through the various requirements to use inter-row cultivation as well as proper timing for weed control. Challenges with this method of weed control are also discussed. The tool is not specific for organic farmers but may be used by farmers and crop advisors looking for alternatives to herbicide use.
