About this book
The Handbook of Sustainable Weed Management presents the latest international strategies for controlling weeds while preventing dangerous chemicals from endangering the ecosystem or human lives. This compendium focuses on designing future weed management strategies that reduce herbicidal usage, restore ecological balance, and increase food production. This book provides new insights and approaches for weed scientists, agronomists, agriculturists, horticulturists, farmers, extentionists, teachers and students.
In the Handbook of Sustainable Weed Management, experts from Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia organize in one resource the scattered information related to weeds and their management from different ecosystems around the world. The text captures the multifaceted impacts of and approaches to managing weeds from field, farm, landscape, regional, and global perspectives. Generously illustrated with tables and figures, this book not only describes the various techniques for weed management but shows you what methods work best for a given site, invasive weed, or invaded crop.
