Agriculture faces unprecedented environmental vagaries and as such Weed Scientists are confronted with innumerable challenges. Thus, vegetation managers are facing new problems due to changing behaviour of weeds, which has invited the human attention to mould their attitudes into a manageable form. Bio-diversity and conservation advocated by ethno-botanists and dominance of a single species (crop) as desired by the weed managers are the diverging views of the two schools of thought. Convergence of the two ideas has however, been conceptualized to be the recommended modus operandi for optimizing the dynamic behavior of weeds in the agro-ecosystems, without affecting the biodiversity and sustainability.
