Advancing weed control strategies for developing countries

Advancing agricultural production in Africa Proceedings of CAB' s First Scientific Conference Arusha, Tanzania, 12-18 February 1984: 193-199

Advancing weed control strategies for developing countries

Weed problems in developing countries such as those interwoven with long fallows which perpetuates the problem of perennial weeds, the long tradition of plantation agriculture for export crops which has encouraged establishment of shade-tolerant perennials and parasitic weeds are briefly described.
