Summary

They create a great source of agro biodiversity, generating habitats and food sources for other organisms; yet weeds have always posed the greatest challenge in Organic Agriculture from the perspective of production.
Because of the specific agricultural management of this farming system, several groups of weed species have naturally adjusted. These can be highly competitive to the crop, acquire high inputs to remove and/or spread rapidly.
In this leaflet we will describe the most challenging weed species in organic spring sown cereals in the geographical area of the Baltic sea, based on existing literature and information provided by extension services.
We will show and discuss their distribution from country to country and propose a classification system.
This research is conducted within the international project of PRODIVA, part of Core Organic, whose research interest is the crop and weed biodiversity interaction in Organic Arable Agriculture.
