EWRS Working Group:

Weed Management in Mediterranean Cropping Systems


Recent climate change generated an agronomical shift towards more irrigated cropping systems in arid and semi-arid regions, leading towards shifts in weed species and biodiversity changes. As a working group, our mission is to share and promote collaborative research in order to create sustainable weed management in the arid and semi-arid countries of Europe under the projected climate change. We want to create new and improved weed management options suitable to the regional changes.

Seeing future challenges and opportunities, the Weed management in arid and semi-arid climate working group is dedicated to promote student and young scientists in order to establish the future generation of weed scientists.

The WG results of the merging of the former WGs 'Weed Management Systems in Vegetables' and 'Weed Management in arid and semi-arid climate'.
