Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

With the changing position of agriculture in the world the challenges for weed management and weed science are changing as well. In this paper recent developments in weed science with respect to several aspects of weed management are discussed in relation to those changes. Developments in cultural weed control or prevention, chemical weed control with emphasis on precision in time and space and mechanical control are discussed. These developments are put in the framework of historical changes in the demand for specific solutions in weed management. Future challenges for weed science are discussed in relation to the changing position of agriculture in the world.
