The Development of HTV Cropping Systems

  • Michel Beckert
  • Yves Dessaux


The introduction of an HT crop into an existing cropping system is accompanied by changes in chemical weed control techniques, but also, either directly or indirectly, by changes in other agricultural practices at the field level. The first part of this chapter deals with the management of weed flora. The second part will seek to describe current trends in the evolution of French cropping systems, which constitute the context within which HTVs would be introduced.
