There is a great need for designing integrated weed management (IWM) programs largely because
of an increase in herbicide-resistant weeds. An IWM program involves using a combination of tools
(cultural, mechanical, biological, genetic, and chemical) to deploy a holistic and synergistic weed
suppression system. An important component of IWM is basing weed management decisions on the
critical period of weed control (CPWC).
