Webinar Managing Weeds in Vegetable Crops: Prevention & Intervention

June 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Don’t let weeds get the best of your field!

Weed pressure is a challenge on any vegetable farm, and it can be especially difficult for organic operations. Join us for a virtual presentation from two vegetable farm managers.

They discuss both preventative approaches and intervention strategies for controlling weeds in vegetable production, including:

  • Stale seed bedding with tarps and flame weeders
  • Mulching with straw, leaves, and roller-crimped cover crops
  • Hand and tractor cultivation tools
  • Underseeding
  • Incorporating animals
  • Integrated Weed Management


Dan Kemper manages all vegetable production fields at Rodale Institute Headquarters. After numerous plant science classes and an internship at Quiet Creek Farm, Dan received a B.S. in Biology at Kutztown University. He then worked for Quiet Creek for two years before coming to the Institute.

Nick Lubecki started his first vegetable farm in 2012 in the Stanton Heights neighborhood of Pittsburgh. In 2018 he began managing Grow Pittsburgh‘s Braddock Farms, one acre of urban vegetable farm plots, which serves as an educational site and sells affordable food to the community.
