Optimisation of herbicide dose
working group

The overall objective of the working group is to promote collaboration and exchange of information among EWRS members involved in research on chemical weed control to ensure an optimum use of herbicides in European crop production. Another objective is to promote the collaboration between researchers in public institutes and the agrochemical industry. The working group was formed in 1993 in response to the increased interest in many European to optimise and reduce herbicide inputs and successfully completed a EU Concerted Action in 1997. The working group is now the process of initiating new activities.
