  1. Your weeds can also be made ‘magnets’ for ‘bad-bugs’ using an intense ‘organic/natural’ system of soil fertility. This was demonstrated again this past Summer here in North Georgia, USA on a 45-acre vegetable and fruit farm located near Clarkesville. Whole fields of lettuce had zero insect damage (no holes in the leaves)from the Flea-hopper Beatle, which usually ravage lettuce. Only an intense fortified liquified compost program was used. This was the second year on the program.

    Whole fields of Sweet Corn (Silver Queen), under the same program, were avoided by the corn-ear worm, as well as all other corn damaging insects and diseases usually associated with corn production.

    An added advantage of getting the bugs to eat the weeds is that these weeds won’t be able to set seed, so the weed pressure will reduced for next year.
