Can You Terminate a Cover Crop with a Flame Weeder? (Video)
This week, I attempted something I’ve been thinking about for a while: using the flame weeder to terminate a cover crop. I really wanted this to work as we could all use more tools in our cover crop termination tool box, and you can see the results below.
For me, the mowing then flaming or a close scythe (if anyone knows where to get a good scythe, drop a line) or a crimp-then-cover are all going to be better options, but I saw some potential here and thought why the hell not?
We’d love to know, what do y’all think? What are some tools or methods you use for making the termination of small-scale cover crops easier or more consistent?
