Weed control in many crops, especially rice, has typically been focused on the use of chemical
herbicides. These have provided quick and convenient control for years, if not decades. However, as
the use of single mode of action chemicals has increased, so too has the incidence of weed populations
developing resistance to that chemical.
Herbicide resistance is now a major concern to the farming industry and integrated weed management
is becoming more important in all cropping systems. Integrated weed management is a tool box of
options that can be tailored to individual farm, cropping and weed situations.
