Talking Weed Issues Across Continents Benefits

Richard Hinchliffe, and English farmer, and Santiago del Solar Dorrego, an Argentinian counterpart, discuss weed resistance with an Argentinian agricultural engineer, Fernando Garcia Frugoni.

Cultural methods have to be integrated first before reaching for chemistry as the final piece.
