Organic Weed Control Farming Note

A 15% dock infestation in a good quality sward will typically result in £80/acre of lost milk per year on an organic farm and £120 on a non-organic system. Without access to an armoury of chemicals, organic weed control relies on a more physical approach, the principals of which can benefit both organic and conventional farms.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Methods to reduce weed burdens
  • Mechanical weed control

Issued March 2009.
