 2001 Weed Science Studies   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
Downy brome was a serious problem in 2001 and that problem was exacerbated by dry spring conditions (potential lack of control with pre-plant tillage and burn-down herbicide application) and the general lack of establishment of the winter wheat phases of the rotations.
In Rotations 2, 3, and 5, weed community composition was assessed in 2001 by returning to the permanently marked 0.25 m² rings in the weed establishment zones in each of the respective plots.
Therefore seedling densities quantified in 2001 represent the effect of one year of conventional as opposed to reduced input management on the populations.

One is large-scale, based on technology and low production costs; the other is intimate, based on the harmonious, young science of “agroecology.” But the economic forces that threaten them are cut from the same cotton.
Conventional farms are failing because they cannot compete with farms in developing countries, where labor costs a fraction of what it does in the U.S. And simply expanding organic onto larger acreage may undermine prices, making organic farming unsustainable.
Conventional crop science feeds the crop with fertilizers, whereas agroecology aims to feed the system, replacing fertilizers with the natural recycling ability of soil organic matter.
