EWRS Working Group:
Precision Weed Management
Precision Agriculture is based on the fact that weed populations are commonly irregularly distributed within crop fields and it implies applying chemical and/or physical weed control measures only where and when they are really needed.
The aim of the EWRS working group Precision Agriculture is to be a platform for discussions, joint research activities, publications and dissemination within the four main topics of the working group:
- Understanding the distribution of weeds in the field
- Sensing and monitoring weed populations
- Using mapping and decision support systems for site-specific management
- Using appropriate technologies for controlling weeds site-specifically
