This publication covers the basics of different weed control options including mechanical, chemical, and environmentally friendly practices. The material provides both consumers and small vegetable farm growers options for weed control in their gardens. Weeds compete for space, steal nutrients and water from crops, and can look unsightly in the home garden. In general, weeds are easier to prevent in the garden than to remove once they start growing. Luckily, gardeners have several possible methods to help in their war on weeds.
