The use of black polyethylene as a pre-planting mulch in vegetables: its effect on weeds, crop and soil


Brighton crop protection conference, weeds Proceedings of an international conference, Brighton, UK, 22-25 November 1993 (Vol. 1): 467-472
The use of black polyethylene as a pre-planting mulch in vegetables: its effect on weeds, crop and soil
Alternative methods of weed control in vegetable crops are discussed, as the availability of herbicides for use in these crops is declining and there is increased demand for information on reduced pesticide input systems. A series of field trials conducted at organic farms in Fife and Morayshire (UK) during 1990-91 and 1993, in which polyethylene was tried as a pre-sowing mulch to increase weed emergence and improve the stale seedbed approach to weed control, are described.
