This is video footage filmed at the Oxford Real Farming Conference (ORFC) 2019 of Jez Taylor from Daylesford Organic Farm who describes the important techniques that are used in the market garden. It formed part of a session that outlined agroecological approaches to managing weeds, with examples of some of the most troublesome arable and horticultural weed species.
