Solarization. Sounds weird, right? Well, it’s a trial we’re doing to control weeds in our organic transition block. Since we can’t spray herbicide, we will try anything that might work!
The logic behind this is that the sun will superheat the ground, killing the weeds and their seeds. We’ll see how it works!
Ever heard of this? Me neither till we attended the California small farm conf. This is another way for organic growers to kill weeds. we are testing this. Hopefully it works.
