At least $590 million a year is spent on agricultural chemicals and almost 70 percent of this on herbicides. Growing Plants without Herbicides sets out options and alternatives to redress this torrent of chemicals being poured onto our plants and food.
“Farmers and gardeners are interested in sustainable growing practices which will preserve the soil and the environment for future generations. They know the importance of producing clean healthy food. The ideas presented in this book should stimulate a flexible approach to the control of unwanted plant growth and help us all to develop other strategies to reduce this problem.”
