Weeds in an era of reduced herbicide dependence. Ecological mechanisms and social challenges for a sustainable crop production

Last changed: 23 February 2024

In this project, we investigate the impact weeds have on crop yield and the role of weed diversity and weed seed predation as ecological alternatives to mitigate weed-related yield losses.

Our approach involves re-analysing existing data, conducting field experiments, and assessing the acceptance of these ecological alternatives among farmers.
