Products Co-op to study Echinacea cultivation
Through a grant from the Organic Farming
Research Foundation, Frontier Organic Research Farm will investigate
whether Echinacea grown in plots with native prairie medicinals
and grasses is more resistant to aster yellows disease than Echinacea
grown in monoculture. The farmers also will assess whether inter-planting
improves productivity, weed control, and beneficial insect counts.
