Weed pest management must be an ongoing consideration for organic farmers to achieve acceptable yields and crop quality. A system of weed management that includes multiple tactics will help reduce losses in both the short and long term. Various weed management tactics fall into two major categories: cultural and mechanical. Cultural tactics are associated with enhancing crop growth or cover, while mechanical tactics are used to kill, injure, or bury weeds. During a cropping season, successful organic weed management will rely on the cultural tactics described in the webinar to achieve competitive crop plants and will use the mechanical tactics to reduce the weed population that emerges in the crop.
