9780123944269: Fundamentals of Weed Science

The fourth edition of Fundamentals of Weed Science addresses herbicides and their use as an important aspect of modern weed management and places them in an ecological framework. Many weed scientists believe agriculture is a continuing struggle with weeds-without effective weed control, good and profitable agriculture is impossible. Each agricultural discipline sees itself as central to agriculture's success and continued progress, and weed science is no exception. While not denying the importance of weed management to successful agriculture, this book places it in a larger ecological context. It discusses the roles of culture, economics, and politics in weed management, enabling scientists and students to understand the larger effects on society. Topics in invasive plants, herbicide resistance, and genetically modified crops bring this valuable resource up to date with contemporary science. An extensive glossary and appendices of common crops and weeds enhance the value of the book. * Information on both old and new herbicides provides historical context * New section on weed resistance to herbicides and genetic engineering* New information on invasive plants* Expanded chapters on biological control, pesticide legislation and regulation, weed management systems, and more
