herbicides used in combination with those mulches decrease due to increased light exclusion and the physical barrier provided by herbicides ( Marble, 2015 ). Overall, similar trends were observed in both bed types at both locations. The weed suppression

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

-term crop rotation systems. Wang et al. (p. 68) evaluated effects of four brassica and sorghum-sudangrass cover crops on nutrient cycling, weed suppression, and onion yield on a muck soil with high organic matter in Michigan. All cover crops recycled

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

spoiled hay, which can be used as an in-row mulch for trees in organic orchards ( Granatstein et al., 2003 ). In our trial, WCM, SPM, and white clover living mulch all provided excellent weed suppression. Tree growth was also improved in WCM and SPM
