I have had one of the county specialist contact me for information and
was hoping this group may be able to help me with an answer. Below is
the specific request from the specialist:
"Weed control by balanced soil nutrients is a request by a producer
interested in a sustainable agriculture approach to weed control. He
feels that braodleaf weeds and grasses will thrive on soils that are
lacking nutrients in the correct amount and proportions. In my
opinion, this concept may or may not be the direction to reduced grass
and broadleaf weeds in our crops. Also, I am at a loss in finding
demonstrations that would support the idea. Your assistance with
literature about this topic will be appreciated."
If anyone has any comments I can pass along, I would appreciate it.
