Re: weed control

I've seen some research in this area and personally feel that there is 
some merit in the idea. Weeds tend to grow in "less fertile" soil, with 
the key being "balanced soil". It is a direction to go but not a cure 
all for weed control. Certain weeds can be indicaters of a soil nutient 
deficency. Try to find the book "An Acres USA Primer". Another one from 
ACRES USA is "Science in Agriculture" -Arden B. Anderson. "Weeds as Soil 
Indicaters" -Susan Sides; Mother Earth News JUL/AUG 1987.  I also came 
across a little hand out called "Weeds Why?" from McCarman Farms 
(616)636-8226.  Hope it helps!
