Does anyone know of organic friendly means of eradicating Perilla frutescens besides pulling and mowing? 


Looking for both temporary and long term solutions. Wondering if anyone knows of a plant(s) that could be seeded that are good forage (specifically for goats in this situation) and would compete with and/or suppress the Perilla, or if application of certain rock powders or other minerals, etc would make it less desirable for it to grow. So far, virtually all of the solutions on line mention glyphosate or similar chemical solutions. Prefer to keep the pastures organic and they are LOADED with the stuff. For now, pulling out as much as possible and mowing the rest to keep it from seeding. Experience and wisdom on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
