“Weed blasting” research highlighted in the Minneapolis Star Tribune and MOSES Organic Broadcaster!

August 25th, 2014

Prof. Wortman’s recent research on weed control with air-propelled abrasive grits (a.k.a., “weed blasting”) was highlighted in two recent articles in the Minneapolis Star Tribune http://www.startribune.com/business/272510321.html and the MOSES Organic Broadcaster http://mosesorganic.org/sandblasting/

We have now developed a collaborative partnership with USDA-ARS scientist Frank Forcella and South Dakota State University researchers to continue the development of weed blasting in organic vegetable crops.
