Strip cultivation in apples video
Watch this video on strip cultivation in apples from the MSU Organic Pest Management’s research.
The video provides highlights of a pilot study conducted at three apple orchards in 2010. It covers weed management, impact on soil ammonium, tree growth, beneficial mites, and the economics of the technique compared to herbicide based orchard row middle management. We are presently beginning a second season of research.
The project is funded by the Michigan Apple Committee.
Dr. Grieshop’s work is funded in part by MSU’s AgBioResearch.
