The War on Weeds

In this video Jonne Rodenburg elaborates on The War on Weeds that is the central theme in the Parasite project.


In his search for a solution to the problem of weeds that limit African rice production, Jonne Rodenburg works at many levels, from genetic research to production systems. One of his findings is that farmers' practices and considerations must be included in crop and weed management strategies. There is no silver bullet or one-size-fits-all solution.
