Weeds are unwanted plants that steal the nutrition and minerals of the important plants and crops that are growing in your garden. And they may grow on the nutrition and food off your important plants and may hamper their growth. It is very important to protect your plants and garden from weeds. Weeds grow at a much higher speed than the normal plants growing in your garden. Weed control is also known as pest control in which weeds are prevented to reach a mature stage when they can harm pets and plants. In order to reduce the amount of weeds there are different weed control strategies that can be applied to prevent its growth.
The most common and preferred method that is applied in order to remove and destroy the weeds is plowing. Today there are many other chemicals present in the market that can help you decrease the amount of weeds growing in your garden. Herbicides are widely used in different parts of the world to control the growth of weeds.
In domestic gardens there are different methods like covering the area of the garden with many layers of newspaper for several weeks in order to control the amount of weeds. Also, you can use a black sheet instead of newspaper. You keep a newspaper for seven days, it prevents the light of the sun from entering beneath and hence kills the unwanted plants. Saturating the newspaper that you place on the ground every day helps in the decomposition of the plants that die in this process. The dead plants also help in increasing the nutrition and minerals for the soil. After few weeks you will find most of the weeds are dead and can be removed easily. If you are using a black sheet then the greenhouse effect will help you in killing the plants and weeds beneath it. The weeds reproduce at a much faster rate than other plants and you will be able to see that they survive most of the adverse conditions as well. It is very important to know the kind of weeds growing in your garden so that you can easily kill them using the correct method and herbicides.
One of the common techniques that are used by growers in different parts of the world is the Stale seed bed in which soil is cultivated and is left for about a week. When the seeds are germinated in the ground, there are increased chances for the growth of weeds that hampers the growth of the plants and eat up their nutrition. Stale seed bed helps in killing the weeds at the time of germination and helps in retaining the essential nutrients of the soil.
