Author(s):

Abstract:
Farmers usually use tillage equipment to improve the soil structure and to control weeds. But they actually damage the soil structure and reduced soil fertility by doing this again and again. In conservation agricultural systems, however, tillage is reduced or totally eliminated. The use of conservation agriculture (CA) is widely increasing in the world due to several advantages, such as conserving the soil and water resources, reconstructing the soil’s fertility, protecting the soil from erosion, and reducing labor needs. Adoption of any appropriate physical, biological or chemical weed management strategy to the existing cultural weed management of conservation agriculture fulfils the multiple approach of integrated weed management (IWM). IWM is valuable to conservation agriculture; as it assists in the management of weed problems and non- availability of some weed control options. Thus, this review article discusses integrated weed management in relation to conservation agriculture and environmental sustainability.
