Band-steaming is a new method that may reduce the need for hand-weeding in demanding row crops like carrot and drilled onion. Band-steaming only affects a soil volume equal to the intra-row area of the subsequent crop, and effectively kills the weed seeds in this soil volume. Side-effects on beneficial soil organisms are minimized as compared to current steaming technology, but still need to be assessed.
