Based on the experience from science and practice, the handbook aims to present and discuss direct and indirect mechanical weed control.
In the Introductory section the reader gets an overview of different machinery, mechanical, thermal and system-based methods to control weed. The farmer learns which factors contribute to soil compaction and gets advice how to avoid it. Furthermore, direct measures during seedbed preparation and tillage to control weeds as the creeping thistle and vetches on arable crops and vegetable crops are proposed.
Finally, the development and the potential of future machinery is presented.
