The EWRS Working Group “Crop-Weed Interactions” focuses on the interactions between crop and weed plants occurring after emergence of weedy plants in a crop stand. Attention is given to a fundamental understanding of processes governing crop-weed interactions as well as the utilization of this knowledge for improved weed management.
The main objectives of the working group are:
- To bring fellow scientists together to exchange information and promote discussion on the working group topic
- To track current trends in ecological research and the management of weeds and creatively develop new directions of research relevant to weed management in general and crop-weed interactions in particular
- To encourage collaborative research programs
