Summary

The dock plant suppresses pasture and arable crop plants, impedes the harvest, minimizes yields and is not consumed by animals on pastures.
Its tremendous reproduction potential and tenacity against control attempts represent a major challenge on organic farms.
This technical guide lists reasons for dock spreading on arable lands, offers proposals for their remediation, and demonstrates how docks can be consistently controlled on organic farms according to current knowledge.
