The struggle against weeds in agriculture is leading to worries about the side-effects of the herbicides used. The meeting on which this publication is based was called by the Commission of the European Communities in order to analyse this problem. Alternative ways of checking weeds are examined such as biological, mechanical, high temperature and solarisation methods, as well as the better use of chemical herbicides. The book is divided into sections covering the following topics: needs for alternative weed control strategies, changes in the composition of weed flora, threshold approaches, chemical weed control, non-chemical weed control, weed regulation strategies and practical compromises.
