The article provides information on the response of Marek Nowakowski of Wildlife Farming Company, to Farmers Weekly's Direct Talk on Weeds discussion forum. Nowakowski says he is disappointed that Direct Talk weed specialist Ken Davies is apparently unaware of the extensive field margin management trials undertaken in Great Britain. But he believes Davies is correct in his suggestion that field edge habitat management might be best left to those who already know best how to grow crops.
