Summary

The weed cutter CombCut is a new type of machine that a Swedish organic farmer has developed against thistles in cereals.
The video shows that the use of the CombCut may be successful in particular situations.
First of all, it can be used for a longer-term strategy against thistles or black grass. Beyond that, it is suitable for example in systems with reduced tillage and green manures after a mild winter, when the green manure crops such as mustard or Phacelia don’t freeze off and grow beyond the corn stock.
