Effective weed management strategies for UK organic arable crops

Oxfordshire organic farmer Philip Day, is conducting a survey of UK organic arable farmers, as part of his MSc in Organic Farming at SRUC, Aberdeen, to assess how they manage weeds in their crops.  The aim is to determine whether there are factors and techniques which are more successful than others.  It is hoped that such information may be useful in improving organic arable weed management.

If you are able to help, please complete the survey: 

“I manage an organic mixed farm (dairy, arable and sheep) in Oxfordshire and have done so for 18 years.  I began my MSc at the age of 54 in order to validate what I know about organic farming and find out what I don’t know.  I hope an MSc will help make me a better farmer, broaden my horizons and maybe open up new opportunities.”
