Are you struggling with compost and weeds? Composting is such a beneficial practice but if done incorrectly, you may end up with a lot of weeds in your beds.

Learn More from the Garden Professors – they are one of the most reliable sources of information about gardening. Their information is always science-based, unbiased and realistic. They produce excellent blogs, scientific articles, and podcasts.

In this November Podcast, author Annie Klodd states “Anyone applying compost, manure, or straw should keep in mind that while these inputs have many benefits for vegetable production, they can also be modes of spread for weed seeds. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize the number of weed seeds that appear in compost and manure and then end up on the field.”
