The BumblePuppy Press is a small house with big ambitions. Or at least, a small press that aims to publish good work and to keep it available over the long term.
A first for me tomorrow #backtoschool @HullUniv Talking about #blackgrass and other menacing weeds we deal with on the farm. Been doing my homework today before tomorrow.. Their work isn't using chemicals its using drones and all sorts of genius wizardry.. Yikes #itllbereyt
Just to note… monocrop cultures have increased disease build-up/pests and greater levels of chemicals are needed to control.
Best thing for #blackgrass? Cows. Cows destroy it.
Another reason why mixed farming models should applied across the world. Transitions needed.
Study finds link between evolution and herbicide resistance
A study of herbicide resistance in #blackgrass has helped a team of scientists determine the genes behind an evolutionary plant trait.
Grass weeds, better the devil you know.. a significant amount of work from stow longa and York. #grassweeds #cultivationtrials #23yearswork #blackgrass #soilstructure @AgriiUK @BishopBurton
It might be common but Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Kokuryu' (formerly 'Nigrescens') is a good doer and totally impervious to the winter weather.
And it isn't a grass...

This #blackgrass at the bottom of a vigorous crop of #Kingsbarn hybrid barley is looking a little worse for west. Very poor rooting and hopefully will come to nothing. #cropcompetition2
