Welcome to the
European Weed Research Society
(EWRS) web site

The EWRS is an international organization which promotes and co-ordinates scientific research into all aspects of weed science.

Using this site, the EWRS aims to provide support for international collaboration in weed science, partly by assisting the work of the EWRS Working Groups, and partly by providing general information and resources.
