Weed Control: Sustainability, Hazards, and Risks in Cropping Systems Worldwide


Add your own review!

Overview

In light of public concerns about sustainable food production, the necessity for human and environmental protection, along with the evolution of herbicide resistant weeds, call for a review of current weed control strategies. Sustainable weed control requires an integrated approach based on knowledge of each crop and the weeds that threaten it. This book will be an invaluable source of information for scholars, growers, consultants, researchers and other stakeholders dealing with either arable, row, cash, vegetables, orchards or even grassland-based production systems. The uniqueness of this book comes from the balanced coverage of herbicide effects on humans and environment in relation to best weed control practices of the most important cropping systems worldwide. Furthermore, it amalgamates and discusses the most appropriate, judicious and suitable weed control strategies for a wide range of crops. It reviews the available information and suggests solutions that are not merely feasible but also optimal.

Reviews

...In this modern area of social media, with tweets and 20 second sound bites, serious discussions often lack a depth of understanding. Another challenge in modern communications is our viewpoints on a given topic may become unnecessarily narrowly focused and inflexible. This book by Korres and two other editors does not suffer from these deficiencies. The total number of pages in the book is greater than 600, so to say it glosses over and skims over superficially the important topics of weed control and agriculture is not true. The book also contains a wide diversity of viewpoints that are presented by a plethora of individual authors for the various chapters. I found the book to be well edited and a good source of information on the important topic of how we relate to this, our one planet. Thomas C Mueller, Professor, University of Tennessee ...authors cover diverse topics concerning current, valuable sustainable weed control strategies, challenges and insight on knowledge of various crops and troublesome weeds that threaten it. Andrew Price, Plant Physiologist, USDA-ARS-NSDL

He has published widely in weed science, agronomy, abiotic stress and climate change effects on crops and weeds and bioenergy production. Nilda R. Burgos is a Professor of Weed Physiology at the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, USA. She studies herbicide-resistance; fitness consequences of herbicide resistance; abiotic stress tolerance in crops and weeds; allelopathy and herbicides for weed management; interaction of growth regulators and herbicides; adjuvants; and gene flow between rice and weedy rice. She teaches graduate courses on Ecology and Morphology of Weedy and Invasive Plants and Physiology of Plant and Herbicide Interaction. She also team-teaches Weed Science Practicum and Advanced Crop Science. She is President of the International Weed Science Society for 2016-2020. Stephen O. Duke received his PhD in botany from Duke University in 1975. He is a plant physiologist with the Agricultural Research Service of the USDA. Best known for his research on herbicide modes of action and natural products for weed management, he has over 400 peer-reviewed publications and has been editor or co-editor of ten books and co-author a textbook on mode of action of herbicides.
