hand defoliation ( Skinkis, 2013 ). The feasibility of mechanical ELR was tested mainly in Europe ( Diago et al., 2010 ; Intrieri et al., 2008 ; Tardaguila et al., 2010 ), leading, in some situations, to reductions in crop level and improvement in

Americans are consuming more fresh fruits than ever [ Bentley, 2017 ; U.S. Department of Agriculture-Economic Research Service (USDA-ERS), 2018]. To illustrate, the U.S. per capita consumption of fresh fruits grew by 12% between 2010 and 2018

development of integrated weed management strategies for managed ecosystems centers around habitat delineation of weed species ( Cardina et al., 1997 ). The manipulation of environmental factors to improve crop growth conditions may be feasible through the

accepted by commercial growers in Florida. This could be, in part, because no research has been performed to assess the economic feasibility of a plasticulture system adapted for use in Florida. Moreover, the low cost of operation and ease of use associated

represent an economic impact because total trees in the range of 3/8 to 5/8 inch diameter did not differ among treatments. For example, the MB:Pic treatment had significantly more 3/8- to 1/2-inch-diameter trees compared with the untreated control, but only
