The field of weed science is a relative newcomer to the agricultural arena. However, the innovations and developments that have stemmed from the research in this area have had a major impact on agricultural practices and productivity. With the introduction of the first selective herbicide onto the market, researchers ensured the continuation of the newly recognized science by demonstrating how significant herbicides could be in increasing producers’ yields. Today, although chemical weed control plays a major role in weed management and remains a key element of weed science, research interests have become as diversified as any subset of sciences.
