Chapter synopsis: This chapter discusses advanced detection technologies for weed scouting. It starts by highlighting the current techniques that can be used to make optimising herbicide treatments more efficient, such as on-ground and remotely-sensed weed detection. The chapter then goes on to discuss the replacement of herbicide treatments for other control tactics. A section on redesigning farming systems to contribute to agroecosystem sustainability is also included, focusing specifically on collaborative research programs, agroecology, cropping systems and the impacts of control actions. The chapter concludes by highlighting the importance of improving detection technologies for weed scouting in the future.
