IWM is beneficial to conservation agriculture; as it assists in the management of weed problems and non-availability of some weed control options.
The increased interest of researchers is probably also linked to the development and growth of organic farming, low-input and conservative agriculture, in which weed management is essentially based.
An experiment was conducted at Holetta Agricultural Research Center to study the effect of weed management practices on weeds and yield of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) during 2010 to 2011 crop.Wheat is infested with both grassy and broadleaf weeds and effective weed management require an integrated approach using both chemical and non-chemical approaches (Chhokar et al., 2012 and Singh, 2007). For effective management of complex weed flora, mixture of more than one herbicide is required.The last decade of research has provided a solid foundation for the breeding of weed suppressive wheat cultivars, and continued research in this area should be a focus for the future. In the interim, there is cause for optimism that weeds can be effectively suppressed using existing wheat varieties, through careful cultivar selection and choice of planting design.
CIMMYT’s wheat research aims to: Develop climate resilient, nutritious, high yielding disease and pest tolerant wheat lines. Use the latest molecular breeding tools, bioinformatics and selection methods. Ensure that national agricultural research system partners are active participants in breeding.Read More

There has been a long-felt need for a teaching manual on Principles and Practices of Weed Management. This manual is a precise account of various theoretical aspects of weed management presented in a simple language suitable for Agron 503 students. The manual has been divided in 5 units.Read More
Wheat (Triticum aestivum L) is the most extensively grown cereal crop in the world, covering about 237 million hectares annually, accounting for a total of 420 million tonnes (Isitor et al., 1990.Read More
Key words: Triticum aestivum, weed, wheat. Abstract A field experiment was conducted at Agronomy research field, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Bangladesh during November, 2012 to March, 2013 to find out the impact of different weed control methods on growth and yield of wheat.Read More
Prosulfuron can be tank mixed with glyphosate applied preplant in no-tillage cropping systems to combine two weed management operations. The objective of this research was to evaluate glyphosate, prosulfuron, and glyphosate plus prosulfuron applied pre-plant (PP) for weed management in spring seeded no-till barley, oats, and wheat. 2.Read More
Herbicide-led research dominates weed research in the APWSS region. Herbicide use continues to be a critical weed management tool in the gradually developing nations and emerging economies of the.Read More
Weeds compete with wheat for nutrients, water, and light therefore reducing crop yield and grain quality. Control of weeds is a basic requirement and major component of management in most crop production systems. Increasing crop competitiveness is an important component of integrated weed management.Read More
Efforts to manage herbicide resistance have led to the adoption of conservation agriculture in the rice-wheat cropping system, as a component of IWM. Research on weed management in India is mostly centred on herbicide efficacy.Read More
