Integrated Weed and Soil Management explores the connection between soil science and weed control, providing the latest research and applications for weed management in agricultural systems.

Five major areas discussed include:

  • surface residue, tillage, and weed and soil management

  • integration of soil and weed management to reduce environmental degradation

  • modeling weed emergence, interference, and management

  • new technology and management

  • development of the next generation of weed management systems

    Throughout the text, the editors and contributors replace weed control terminology with weed management terminology, shifting the paradigm of one of control to one of better management.

    Integrated Weed and Soil Management, a great reference for higher research, improves your understanding of soil science, weed biology, and ecology - leading to effective practical application and maximum results.
