Garlic is a high-value crop, but weed control is essential to quality. It is also time consuming, and the farmer will test the effectiveness of vinegar as compared with mechanical weed control. He will also monitor the soil pH to see if it is affected, and he will compare the test and control crops for quality and weight. Results will be published in a national growers’ publication and, if results are promising, a field day might be offered.
