This well researched book covers all aspects of organic weed management. It is essential reading, not only for organic farmers, growers, and smallholders, but also for organic advisers and consultants, agricultural students and all those who have an interest in weed management theory and practice in organic farming systems. The authors provide a practical guide to weed management practices on organic farms in temperate areas and emphasize a 'whole system approach' to organic weed management in the context of whole rotations. The book examines the scientific and organic principles underlying weed management and considers their implications for weed control. A thorough assessment is made of all of the common weeds and the different methods needed to manage them, both within particular crops and across broader organic agricultural systems.
