  • Organic Thinking - Our Relationship with Weeds
    This video series by Purdue Extension shares the stories of 6 unique organic farmers and their distinctive approaches to weeds and weed management. These farmers are from different geographic locations and vary significantly in scale, available labor, and the tools they use. They are also very different in their perception and tolerance of weeds. These profiles show that how we see weeds will determine how we manage weeds. We hope these profiles will help you in considering what factors are most important to you and some strategies that might be appropriate for you and your farm.
