Some interesting research at the University of Illinois has been looking at blasting weeds away to assist organic tomato and pepper growers. The research could lead to tests looking at controlling weeds in kale fields.
Keeping kale dark and green in the field and maintaining vitamins and minerals in the plant mean growers must control insects that feed or suck on this leafy vegetable. One such pest includes the whitefly.
