The aim of the course is to provide students with specialized training in weed science. eeds cause significant losses in crop production despite the continued development of cultural, mechanical, biological and chemical controls. In addition they reduce crop quality, cause cultivation and harvest problems and act as hosts for crop pests and pathogens. Only by understanding weed life cycles and their interactions with crops and the environment can truly integrated controls be developed.
