This project seeks to develop a knowledge transfer tool to assist organic market gardeners with weed control. The tool will take the form of a digital datasheet with hyperlinks that facilitate access to the videos and websites of machinery manufacturers and distributors, among others. It will provide information on a wide variety of weeding equipment and the parameters for using them with a variety of market garden crops.
From 2019 to 2020
