Inspecting the fall rye field gave me goose bumps! NO visible colonies of weeds! Apparently, fall rye has an ability to discourage the growth of weeds. Looks like it works. Last year, Canada Thistle was a problem in this field, this year, seems Canada Thistle can't compete (the rye is 4-5 feet tall). Looking forward to harvest!
Rusk Ranch is located near the middle of Canada in the Swan River Valley agricultural belt. This beautiful acreage is totally surrounded by conventional chemical farms. It is hoped that the information supplied here will aid farmers and gardeners to grow nutrient dense crops in a sustainable manner which is in harmony with Mother Earth!!
