During the 2021 season, Annika Rowland, a graduate student in Matthew Ryan’s Sustainable Cropping Systems Lab at Cornell University, conducted preliminary research on the use and efficacy of an inter-row mower in organic soybeans at the Musgrave Research Farm, Aurora, N.Y. Preliminary results indicate this new tool can effectively reduce weeds without the potential environmental drawbacks sometimes seen with other weed control practices, such as tillage and herbicides.
