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
