    This Field Day will present an overview of the weed management system used on the 30-acre UK Organic Farming Unit, which has been growing and selling certified organic vegetables, fruit, flowers and herbs for over ten years. This highly diversified farm markets through CSA, farm stands, and wholesale channels, and is used to train students in a farming apprenticeship program. Through a combination of discussion, handouts, and hands-on experience attendees will have the opportunity to see the entire weed control system while gaining a deeper understanding of how to combine strategies such as rotation, cover cropping, bed preparation, stale seedbed cultivation, between row cultivation, and in-row cultivation to effectively control weeds. This Field Day will benefit anyone interested in developing an effective weed management system on their farm and reducing labor costs associated with weed control.
