Summary

This video demonstrates, step by step how to assess weed biodiversity and how you can exploit weeds' functionality in greenhouses. Different levels of weed biodiversity and traits are associated with different ecosystem services/disservices – as an example: the more diverse and balances the weed community, the less harmful and competitive it is for crops.
This video is relevant for farm advisors and educators looking to assess a weed population on a farm, in a greenhouse or in a garden!
