Weed management have been a major challenge for crop producers from the start of agriculture. At the earlier times, since no synthetic chemicals were known, weed control was achieved by some methods such as hand weeding, crop rotation, polyculture and other management practices that were low input but sustainable. With the discovery of synthetic herbicides in the early 1930s, there was a shift in control methods toward high input and target-oriented ones. Weed and Pest Control: Conventional and New Challenges emphasizes on alternative insect control strategies, such as the allelopathy phenomenon, tactics in integrated pest management of opportunistic generalist insect species, biological control of root pathogens, insect pest control by polyculture strategy, application of several integrated pest management programs, irrigation tactics and soil physical processes, and carbon stocks to manage weeds. In first chapter, the most important alternative weed control methods are discussed. Second chapter will addresses the impact of different irrigation systems on weed management with an emphasis on drip irrigation technologies. Third chapter explores on weed control by chemical and mechanical means. Weed and disease control and peanut response following post emergence herbicide and fungicide combinations has been presented in fourth chapter. The aims of fifth chapter are to present some aspects of integration of allelopathy to control weeds in rice that is pertinent to sustainable agriculture. Sixth chapter presents a review on seed management in cereals in semi-arid environments. In seventh chapter, we define companion plants as interplantings of one crop (the companion) within another (the protection target) where the companion directly benefits the target through a specific known (or suspected) mechanism. Chapter eighth explores on integrated pest management and ninth chapter consider topics in biological control of pests. Tenth chapter evaluates and provides informatio
