Crop yield losses from weed competition can be substantial. The degree of loss depends on, crop and weed species present; timing and duration of competitive interactions; and resource availability (Agri 21 FAO*, IFIC 2004**). Worldwide, the competitive effect of weeds causes a 10% loss in agricultural production. Yield losses in rice and other grass crops in West Africa have been reported to range from 28-100% if weeds such as witchweed (Striga hermonthica) –a parasitic weed–are not controlled; the greatest reductions occur on nutrient-poor soils.
