Lectures

12 x 2 hours

1. Introduction: basic definitions. Prevention strategies in weed management.

2. Weed-crop interactions in managing weed problems.

3. Cultural weed management.

4. Role of cover crops in weed management.

5. Allelopathy as a tool for weed management.

6. Bioherbicides.

7. Mechanical weed management.

8. Night tillage.

9. Non-living mulches for weed control.

10. Thermal weed control.

11. Soil solarization and weed management.

12. Role of non-chemical weed management in different food production systems.

Lab classes (3 x 2)

Projects based on the problem-solving cases:

1. Get to know your weed - project aiming at getting familiar with the most important weeds, their biology and crops they infestate.

2. Designing a crop-rotation including intercrops to manage the troublesome weed species, including the other cultural methods (i.e. competitive crops, increased seed density). Application of mulches and allelopathic plants to the crop rotation for weed management.

3. Designing a proper mechanical soil cultivation and thermal methods to the crop- rotation.
