Watch out plants - the Grossman Lab is coming...... When folks hear that we are the "Soil Agroecology Lab" the first thought that comes to mind is usually our ability to grow plants. While we can grow some things, man, we are good at killing them too! With spring around the corner (yes, even after today's ice storm, we are thinking of spring) we are fast planning our next kill. Whether we use the disk, the mower, or this roller crimper (see video - thanks Matt!!), we can't stop talking about "termination" or "kill". We sound like mad, murderous scientists.
The video is in thanks to and a part of Matt Brown's research studying the many ways to kill cover crops. Who wouldn't want to play with this roller crimper?
