FIVE GENERAL CATEGORIES OF WEED CONTROL METHODS.

Controlling weeds in crop production may involve a wide range of techniques. Nevertheless, virtually all weed control methods may be classified into one or more of five main categories. The 5 general categories of weed control are:

 

  • Preventative Weed Control

Preventative weed control refers to any control method that aims to prevent weeds from being established in a cultivated crop, a pasture, or a greenhouse. Examples of preventative weed control would be using certified weed free seed, only transporting hay that is weed free, making sure farm equipment is cleaned before moving from one location to another, and screening irrigation water to prevent weed seeds from traveling along irrigation ditches.

  • Cultural

Cultural weed control refers to any technique that involves maintaining field conditions such that weeds are less likely to become established and/or increase in number. Examples of cultural weed control would be crop rotation, avoiding overgrazing of pastures or rangeland, using well-adapted competitive forage species, and maintaining good soil fertility.

  • Mechanical

Mechanical weed control refers to any technique that involves the use of farm equipment to control weeds. The two mechanical control techniques most often used are tillage and mowing.

  • Biological

Biological weed control refers to any technique that involves the use of natural enemies of weed plants to control the germination of weed seeds or the spread of established plants. This is a rapidly expanding area of weed control with many examples.

  • Chemical

Chemical weed control refers to any technique that involves the application of a chemical (herbicide) to weeds or soil to control the germination or growth of the weed species. In economic terms, chemical control of weeds is a very large industry and there are a lot of chemical weed control products.

I saw a post mentioning your site on one forum asking something about buying email lists.

I would personally recommend that you consider using a Yellow Pages scraper such as Ivy’s B2B Leads Miner Yellow Pages Scraper.

I cannot find the link but you can google it.

I am using it for generating my own B2B leads and it is so much cheaper than buying your own lists so don’t waste your money on pre-made lists.

Anyway mate, I hope this helps.

Take care and best of luck with your business!

I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today,
уet I neνer found ɑny interesting artіcle like
yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
wеbmasters and blogցers made good content aѕ you did, tһe web will be mucһ more useful than ever before.

Ƭoday, I went to the beacһ front with my children. I found a seɑ shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” Ⴝhe pⅼaced the ѕhell to her ear
and scгeamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her еar. Sһe never wants to go back!
LoL I know this iѕ entirely off t᧐pic but I had tօ tell someone!

It’s great to know that there are biological ways to control weed growth as well nowadays. Protecting my yard from weeds definitely does sound like an important aspect of being a homeowner, but I want it to be as natural and free from chemicals as possible. If I can find a weed control expert in the area that knows how to use fertilizers and other biological means, I’ll definitely work with them.
