Videos Address Organic Almond Orchard Weed Control

Two new videos in SARE’s Manage Weeds on Your Farm series explore organic almond-grove weed control on Burroughs Family Farm’s 1,200-acre orchard in Denair, California. In Ecological Weed Management at Burroughs Family Orchards, Benina Montes, who manages the property with her parents, shares how consistent vegetative cover paired with seasonal sheep grazing is used to provide effective almond orchard weed control. The second new video, Soil Health at Burroughs Family Orchards, explores the orchard’s regenerative soil improvement practices.
