Objectives, impacts and benefits

The objective of AC/DC-weeds is to implement more and better agro-ecological management for creeping perennials in arable farming. Overall aim is to reduce plough-tillage in organic and conventional farming  and to replace glyphosate use in the latter also. Cropping systems with less herbicide use to control perennial weeds put less pressure on the environment, will be more resilient and would allow more biodiversity in the annual weed vegetation.
