About this book

Language: French

Chemical-based weed management is being questioned just like intensive agricultural model. Under societal pressure, public authorities are encouraging the agricultural sector to develop more sustainable production methods that are not as dependent on herbicide use. This collective work explores ways of controlling and regulating weed that integrate all environmental issues. It presents the current knowledge of weed biology, diversity of management techniques and natural processes of regulation. The book is divided into three parts: Part 1 reviews basic knowledge of weed science, Part 2 depicts sustainable weed management practices, and Part 3 offers case studies of weed management. The book reflects the plurality of views on weed flora due to the variety of the disciplines concerned and the divergent perceptions of the negative or beneficial effects of this ‘wild’ plant community. This is one of the strengths of this book. It is designed for students and teachers in the agricultural sector, as well as farmers and those who prescribe agricultural development, who will be able to find a range of helpful information on weed management for daily use.
