Greenhouse Weed Control (NC)


Greenhouse Weed Control (NC)


Wdssuch as creeping woodsorrel {Oxalis comiculata), hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta), prostrate spurge (Euphorbia hamistrata), and others are persistent problems in greenhouses. Not only do these weeds detract from the perceived quality of plants produced, but some also are known to harbor insects, such as whitefly and thrips, and other pests such as mites, slugs and snails. Therefore the removal of weeds from greenhouse pots, benches and floors is important for aesthetic and pest management reasons. There are a number of options available to the greenhouse manager for controlling these pests.
