AFROweeds project workshop

The annual workshop of the AFROweeds project was held, 27–30 June in Cotonou to discuss with project partners the progress made and future activities. It was attended by 23 participants. The AFROweeds project aims at establishing a viable African–European weed science network, consolidating existing knowledge on weed management by building a user-friendly web-based platform on weeds of West and East African lowland rice-cropping systems and enhancing the exploitation and dissemination of good weed management practices in lowland rice-cropping systems.

It is jointly carried out by CIRAD, France and Africa- Rice with support from the European Union (EU) and the countries of the African, Caribbean and Pacific group of states (ACP) Science and Technology Program.
