Description:

Weeds hold an enigmatic and sometimes controversial place in agriculture, where they are generally reviled, grudgingly tolerated, and occasionally admired. Weeds affect crop productivity and quality, and ultimately the sustainability of agriculture. This makes them an important object of scientific study. This book offers a global perspective on weed science by presenting contributions from an outstanding group of researchers in 12 countries, reviewed by over 50 experts. It discusses technologies, which could relieve the negative impacts of weeds on crop production in a way that allows growers to optimise profits and preserve human health and the environment. These technologies represent…
