Peer-reviewed Article: Sustainable Organic Corn Production with the Use of Flame Weeding as the Most Sustainable Economical Solution


Miloš Rajkovi´c, et al., September 2021

Flame weeding is an alternative method of weed control. Essentially, it is a supplement
to other physical and mechanical processes used in organic production. Weed control costs have a large share of the total cost of crop production. This study aimed to investigate hand weed hoeing’s cost-effectiveness, accompanied by inter-row cultivation and flame weeding applied in organic maize production using two different machines to determine the economically best solution. For
this purpose, the prototype flame weeder and commercial flame-weeding machinery were used.
