Abstract

Weeding with geese has proved to be an effective and cheap means of controlling grassy annual and perennial weeds when combined with other good farming practices. From 175,000 to 200,000 geese are being used in crops in California each year; the practice has been widely accepted and has spread rapidly since geese were first used for weeding commercial fields about seven years ago.
