Mechanical Weed Control and Weed Ecology in Vegetable Production – Sam Hitchcock Tilton
For effective weed management, farmers need an understanding of weed ecology paired with the right tool, at the right time. Learn about systems-based strategies for weed control, new and emerging machines on the market, individual tools and implements and best-use strategies for your current equipment.

He has a background in vegetable farming and a master’s degree from Michigan State University with a focus on precision weeding tools. Sam has designed weeding machines for KULT-Kress and visited farms throughout Europe and the U.S., and he organizes the Midwest Mechanical Weed Control Field Day.
