Summary of thesis Crop weeds are harmful to crops, both directly and indirectly. Crop weeds can inhibit the growth of crops, contaminate harvested crops and often spread rapidly. To avoid the over-use of chemicals, finding control alternatives becomes a necessity. Describing the genetic structure of weedy plant populations is relevant for their management, because both within and among population variability has been shown to affect the efficacy of preventative and curative control methods.
