Excessive weed growth is one of the most serious problems facingfarmers throughout the tropics. There is a need for professionallytrained weed scientists to become involved in research at the highestlevel, where existing technologies can be further developed and new onesgenerated. The book considers in depth the concepts, principles andpractices of tropical agriculture and introduces students and teachersto weed science as an integral part of a crop protection programme. Theauthor has drawn together in one book all aspects of weed sciencenecessary to students and teachers of the subject: weed biology andecology; weed-crop interactions; coverage of the role of seed bank,seed rain, reproduction in weeds and crop mimicry by weeds. The use ofherbicides in the tropics is not only new but also poorly understood.The author includes chapters on herbicide chemistry, classification,presence and fate in tropical environments, and action in plants andsoils. Safe use of herbicides, including handling, disposal, andfirst-aid treatment are discussed. Weed control practices applicable toa wide range of arable and plantation crops, multiple cropping andconservation tillage systems are also discussed.
