Kevin Schooley and Stephen Meyers joined the discussion to talk about weeds and weed management in matted-row and plasticulture strawberry production. Steve spoke about weeds commonly seen in strawberry fields and gave us a broad overview of the different types of herbicides. Kevin shared years of practical knowledge in controlling weeds using herbicides at the different crop stages. They also discussed options for weed control using non-chemical approaches.
