Chapter synopsis: Sustainable management of weeds represents a major challenge for farmers. Herbicides offer the most effective curative technique and are widely used. Nevertheless, less reliance on them is necessary for environmental and technical reasons, and also in the face of societal pressure. Four detailed case studies, from Denmark, United Kindom, France and Slovenia illustrate the effectiveness of combined methods to control weeds and preserve/improve farmers’ income.
