of appreciation for the benefits that can be realized from cover crops. Cho et al. (p. 258) appointed conservative economic values to weed suppression and nitrogen accumulation of five summer fallow treatments. Results showed that overall production

( Johnson and Mullinix, 1998 ). Although pumpkin vegetation will provide some soil shading and weed suppression once vines form across the soil surface ( Walters, 2011 ), the use of nonselective POST herbicide applications (e.g., paraquat) to row middles

., 1997 ; Reeves, 1994 ). Cereal rye is widely used in Alabama and can produce between 3 and 11 tons/ha of biomass providing benefits such as alleopathic weed suppression and a mulch effect resulting from enhanced residue cover ( Barnes and Putnam, 1983

when applied in the presence mulch, weed control increased with increasing mulch level due to the weed suppression ability of the mulch. In ornamental production, synergistic herbicide and mulch interactions have been reported, as mulch may act as a

herbicide availability is limited. Kelly et al. (p. 87) evaluated several new cultivation tools designed for vegetables. Compared to conventional methods, a finger weeder provided the best in-row weed control. A brush hoe provided good weed suppression
