Peppermint Weed Management

Unfortunately, peppermint plants often suffer from weeds, which compete with plants in terms of space, access to sunlight, water and nutrients. The presence of weeds will have a negative effect in the quantity of fresh plant material harvested as well as in the quality of essential oil. It is essential that all peppermint growers should have a sound weed control strategy, which differs significantly between countries, law framework, means of production, industry to which the product is intended etc.

The first measures against weeds are taken with the first tillage, well before planting the seedlings. A second very important step towards effective weed control is the frequent tillage or the hand weeding of the area between the rows of the plants. Inside the row of the plants, healthy mature peppermint plants normally do not allow weeds to appear due to their dense spacing (on average we have 70.000 to 80.000 plants per hectare). However, professional peppermint farmers check regularly for the presence of weeds inside the row and carefully remove weeds by hand if needed. We must always be proactive and not let any weeds produce and disperse their seeds in the field.
