Weed Management Tips

  • March 2006 edition of Small Farms Magazine has an interesting article on using household sugar to manage weed problems. Researchers from the CSIRO have found that amounts of sugar up to 500g per square metre inhibited the growth of most annual weeds. It has to be applied every three months.
  • Jason Spotswood showed a great tip. To stop grass growing where you don’t want it to run and you don’t want to spray with a herbicide, pile up dead grass and it won’t cross over.
