Integrated weed management (IWM) contributes to the reduction of the use of pesticides and the risks of pesticide use. Novel IWM strategies can have economic consequences for farming systems. To develop alternative weed management strategies that maintain productivity while reducing the environmental impact of weed control for farms in a specific region, the cost effectiveness and feasibility of options should be made clear prior to implementation. In this chapter we discuss our approach for the pre-evaluation of the economics of novel IWM strategies in wheat production, comparing our method with other economic evaluation studies.
