A Whole-Farm Approach to Weed Control

Anne and Eric Nordell, Trout Run, PA

The Nordells work with horses to raise a 6 acre organic market garden in north-central Pennsylvania, growing dried flowers, herbs, lettuce, potatoes, onions, and other vegetables. They use a combination of cover crops, fallowing, tillage, and hand weeding for weed control.

They have produced a 72-minute DVD that focuses on rotational cover cropping and reduced tillage as a means of effectively managing weeds and fertility with limited off-farm inputs. It includes and introduction on putting together a holistic weed management plan.

The DVD was produced in 2007, and it is designed to complement their 42-page booklet of articles which details how they developed each aspect of their bio-extensive cropping system over the past 24 years.

The DVD costs $15 plus $3 shipping and handling; the booklet costs $10 plus $3 shipping and handling. Please make checks to 'Anne and Eric Nordell' and send to:
