SUMMARY Global changes including increases in temperature, atmospheric greenhouse gases, soil degradation and competition for land and water resources, will have multiple impacts on rice production systems in Africa. These changes will affect weed communities, and management approaches must be adapted to take this into account. Higher temperatures and limited water availability will generally advantage C4 over C3 plants (e.g. rice). Conversely, elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) levels will improve… Expand
Adapting weed management in rice to changing climates
TLDR
Some of the scientific background on how projected environmental conditions could affect weeds and weed management in rice in Africa is provided. Expand
Crop-weed interactions and their management under climate change: A review
Weeds pose as biggest threat to crop production accounting about 43% yield loss globally. Unchecked human activities such as over-expanded use of fossil fuels and deforestation have resulted inExpand

TLDR
An up-to-date overview of the adaptation mechanisms of weed species commonly found in Southern Europe is provided, in order to expand the available knowledge regarding their response to drought and elevated temperatures. Expand
Impact of Climate Change Factors on Weeds and Herbicide Efficacy
Abstract Rising carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) concentrations and associated changes in global temperature and precipitation are major concerns for future weed management and crop production. This reviewExpand

Possible approaches for ecological weed management in direct-seeded rice in a changing world.
Labour and water scarcity are the major drivers for shifting the method of rice establishment from traditional transplanting to directseeding in many nations of Asia, where about 90% of world’s riceExpand
Temperature and drought impacts on rice production: An agronomic perspective regarding short- and long-term adaptation measures
This review addresses short- and long-term adaptation strategies in rain fed and irrigated rice production systems under two climate change scenarios, specifically temperature increases and droughtExpand
Weeds in Rice in Africa
    Weed Management in African Rice-based Cropping Systems Across ecosystems
    In sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), weeds are estimated to account for rice yield losses of at least 2.2 million tonnes (Mt) per year (Rodenburg and Johnson, 2009). Combined with costs of weed control, theExpand

    Abstract This review addresses possible adaptation strategies in rice production to abiotic stresses that will aggravate under climate change: heat (high temperature and humidity), drought, salinity,Expand
    Integration of soil, crop and weed management in low-external-input farming systems
    Summary Greater adoption and refinement of low-external-input (LEI) farming systems have been proposed as ways to ameliorate economic, environmental and health problems associated with conventionalExpand
    Agroecosystem responses to combinations of elevated CO2, ozone, and global climate change
    TLDR
    It seems reasonable to assume that agroecosystem responses will be dominated by those caused directly or indirectly by shifts in climate, associated with altered weather patterns, and not by elevated CO2 per se. Expand
    Weeds, Insects, and Diseases
    The geographic distribution, vigor, virulence, and agricultural impact of weeds, insects, and plant pathogens will be affected by climatic changes accompanying the global "greenhouse effect."Expand
    Plant characteristics associated with weed competitiveness of rice under upland and lowland conditions in West Africa
    TLDR
    Grain yield, plant height at maturity and visual growth vigor at 42–63 DAS under weed-free conditions appear to be useful selection criteria for developing superior weed competitive rice genotypes. Expand
    Weed Community Dynamics in the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and the Efficacy of Mechanical Cultivation and Competitive Rice Cultivars for Weed Control in Indonesia
    TLDR
    Examination of the effects of two complimentary control tactics, mechanical cultivation and competitive rice cultivars, on individual weed species, broader weed classes and entire weed communities in West Java, Indonesia finds effective weed control by mechanical cultivation resulted in weed communities with lower species richness, greater dominance by fewer species, and hence lower overall diversity.

    Weed management in rice‐based cropping systems in Africa
    TLDR
    To address the diversity of rice‐based cropping systems in Africa, priorities need to be set and products and information delivered that take full account of local conditions, and locally adapted and affordable combinations of preventive measures and interventions should be targeted. Expand
    Field screening of diverse rice genotypes for weed competitiveness in irrigated lowland ecosystems
    Abstract Weeds cause considerable yield losses in irrigated rice in West Africa, particularly where sub-optimal crop management or limited resources hamper production. Because of the recent focus ofExpand

    Weed competitiveness of the lowland rice varieties of NERICA in the southern Guinea Savanna
    TLDR
    Interspecific breeding using O. glaberrima appears to be an effective approach for improving yield potential and weed competitiveness of semi-dwarf O. sativa and as such for widening the range of useful varieties for lowland rice farmers in Africa. Expand
