This website (organicweeds.org.uk) aims to be a primary resource on weed management for organic farms, reporting on the latest weed information, weeding techniques and weed research. It aims to act as a focal point for farmers, growers, advisors and researchers to share their experiences with weeds. Read about the approach here.
The information on this website is free to use and develop. Below are a list of resources that you might find useful to to begin to learn about and develop your knowledge of any particular weed management topic. A lot of the knowledge arising from this project has also been produced as a book entitled "Weed management for organic farmers, growers and smallholders. A complete guide" produced by the research team. It is available from Garden Organic or through any good booksellers (ISBN 978 1 86126 970 6).
