A team from the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture managed Cassava Weed Management Project has published a revised version of the Handbook of West African Weeds.

Researchers working under the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture led Cassava Weed Management Project (IITA-CWMP) will this week share findings on how to tackle weeds in cassava farming

Ancient woodland is under threat from invasive rhododendron, experts have warned as they revealed the “aggressive” weed now covers woodland the size of 150,000 football pitches.

France will vote on Friday against the continued use of weedkiller glyphosate, its environment minister said, adding to uncertainty over the future of widely-used products such as Monsanto's Roundu

The NGT (Southern Bench) directed the Department of Irrigation to complete the process of removal of weeds and water plants in the rivulet within the period of 2016-17.

French Environment and Energy Minister Segolene Royal has asked garden shops to stop over-the-counter sales of Monsanto's Roundup weedkiller as part of a wider fight against pesticides seen as pote

Production of cereals, the main staple and cash crops for millions of farmers in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is severely constrained by parasitic striga weed Striga hermonthica, stemborers and poor soil fertility.

Recent rapid evolution and spread of resistance to the most extensively used herbicide, glyphosate, is a major threat to global crop production. Genetic mechanisms by which weeds evolve resistance to herbicides largely determine the level of resistance and the rate of evolution of resistance. In a previous study, we determined that glyphosate resistance in Kochia scoparia is due to the amplification of the 5-Enolpyruvylshikimate-3-Phosphate Synthase (EPSPS) gene, the enzyme target of glyphosate.

One of the most difficult parts of organic farming is, obviously, weed and pest control, as very few pesticides and herbicides are all natural.

If adaptive evolution cannot keep up with rapid climate change, populations and even species may decline or go extinct. Such adaptational lag is predicted, but evidence is scarce. We tested for lagging adaptation to warming climate in banked seeds of the annual weed Arabidopsis thaliana in common garden experiments in four sites across the species’ native European climate range. Genotypes originating in climates historically warmer than the planting site had higher relative fitness than native genotypes in every site.
