The objective is to analyse, understand and model the effects of cropping systems (and their location in landscapes) on weeds. The ultimate goal is the multi-criteria evaluation and multi-objective design of cropping systems for integrated weed management (ex. using little or no herbicides, controlling harmful species, preserving biodiversity, minimising environmental impacts, ensuring harvest quantity and quality...). Various biotic components interacting with weeds, biological processes (denitrification...) and flows resulting from cultural practices (pesticides, N, C,...) are also studied to develop indicators for cropping system evaluation.
