Abstract

Take home message
• Integrated weed management has performed better than the Baseline system across most of the indices measured as part of the farming systems trial
• Additional biomass production has not correlated with additional yield, relative to other systems using the same crop rotation
• The improved performance has come at a nutritional cost which will need to be managed if implemented on a broader scale.
