Project

DSS-IWM: Decision Support Systems for Integrated Weed Management

Goal: Since weeds in winter wheat and especially in maize are of major concern, herbicide input for these crops has large impacts to the environment, but also significantly effects cost efficiency of farmers. Experiences from Denmark, Germany and other countries have shown that farmers are willing to invest in decision support systems in order to increase cost efficiency. Therefore, the project DSS-IWM will develop a tool for Integrated Weed Management which combines economic and environmental benefits.
