In case of rice, this phenomenon is more critical than in other crops. The higher intensity of weed infestations, the shift in the floristic composition, and the progressive diffusion of populations resistant to herbicides have led to a higher competition between weeds and the rice crop, heavily impacting its productivity and quality.
