A researcher from the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba dig deep on organic no-till method as he presents his own system to control weeds.
Mr. Keith Bamford, the said researcher, presents the hairy vetch system that control weeds and dry matter biomass. The purpose of the study is to develop a tool that would control perennial weeds from growing.
Growing hairy vetches can allow farmers to stop the growth of mulch and controls it. Moreover, it can also reduce soil erosion, prevent loss of soil moisture, and improve the biological activity of crops.
Also, this tool can preserve organic matter in the soil and maintain the physical properties of the soil.
