In Agro-Ecosystems, Long-term Weed Control


Victor Squires*

Weeds are the major cause of possible crop losses globally (representing 34% on average), regardless of the fact that they are typically overlooked because more attention is devoted to hazardous insects or viruses. As a result, agricultural techniques that are capable of performing effective and responsible management of these undesired plants that naturally occur in agro-ecosystems must be prioritized. As the subject area ranges from ecological to agronomical inquiries, a wide range of scientific concerns should be investigated to achieve this goal. Environmental factors, accessible scientific information, available instruments, economics, and farmers' experience all influence the methods currently used to manage weeds and their efficacy; as a result, it is impossible to design a standard strategy that can be used effectively under all conditions.
