Integrated Weed Management


Integrated Weed Management (IWM) is an approach to managing weeds using multiple control tactics. The purpose of IWM is to include many methods in a growing season to allow producers the best chance to control troublesome weeds. more information contact us

Hybrid Herbicide ™

electrochemical solution to replace chemical herbicides

The crop.zone process combines non-toxic conductive liquids (falling into organic farming guidelines) and the application of low voltage electricity to create an effective combination.
By pre-treating (conditioning) the plants with substances that are highly acceptable for agriculture (e.g. humic substance solutions, sugar tensides, biochar suspensions, rape oil esters), plant growth is controlled with a high degree of efficiency in terms of inputs.

Components of an IWM plan

The aim of IWM is to integrate different methods of weed management into a joint effort for weed control.

Chemical component

Herbicides are and will continue to be an integral part of most weed control plans, but IWM programms will reduce this to a minimum.

Mechanical component

Mechanical weed management focuses on physical practices that disrupt germination and destroy plant tissue.
This includes new methods of electrical weed control.

Integrated Weed Management

Biological component

This biological component uses living organisms to control weeds such as bacteria, fungi or insects that have a preference for a particular weed species.

Cultural component

A healthy, vigorous crop is the best weed control. Cultural practices should give the crop a competitive advantage over weeds.

Prevention

Prevention is one of the first steps in weed management. This category differs from the others in that it focuses on keeping weeds away from the field or spreading within a field.

...any being, if it varies however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex and sometimes varying conditions of life, will have a better chance of surviving, and thus be naturally selected- Charles Darwin, Origin of Species (1859)

Need of sustainable agriculture

Sustainable agriculture is farming in sustainable ways, which means meeting society’s food and textile present needs, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs

KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE AND FRESH IDEAS.
Integrated weed management

Integrated weed management is defined in various ways, but the essence of the concept is that many different weed management tools are used in an integrated way to control weeds. One way to design integrated weed management is to overlap the four sciences/means of weed management: physics, chemistry, biology and ecology.
