Weed blasting research featured on The Organic Center website

October 12th, 2015

Our abrasive-weeding (also known as “weed blasting”) research was highlighted this month on The Organic Center website https://www.organic-center.org/uncategorized/sam-wortman-university-of-illinois-at-urbana-champaign/. Initial results from this project were recently published in the journal Crop Protection (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0261219415300788), and ongoing research is funded through the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture Organic Research and Extension Initiative.
