Taner Yıldız, Fikret Özkaraman, Dilek Kandemir


The chemicals used for weed control cause pollution at both ground and surface waters, and lead to accumulation of pesticide residues in vegetables, fruits and field crops. For this reason, avoiding of use of chemicals and instead applying natural production methods (organic farming) emerged as a people desire. In recent times, the environmental consciousness has increased rapidly all over the world and potential dangers related to use of chemicals led scientists and people to worry.

In this study, some new weed control methods were included that can be applied in organic farming.
