Abstract:

In the present paper, the socioeconomic impact of weed control (manual and chemical + manual) of maize field technologies is assessed using indicators such as cropland, weed control, yield, total cost, gross margin (production value), net margin and net income. The article shows that in the Iffou region of Ivory Coast, where grass cover is a major problem, the use of herbicide reduces weed control time, contributes to solving the problem of scarcity and high cost of labor, and the positive effects on these indicators compared to manual weeding. However, the incidence of the use of herbicide remains low in relation to the number of farmers.
