Given the importance of sustainable weed management across the region’s countries, a book on “Weed management in Rice in the Asian-Pacific Region” is considered appropriate, as a part of commemoration of 50 Years (1967 – 2017) in this APWSS Golden Jubilee Celebratory Year 2017. This volume contains contributions by the eminent weed scientists from around the world on various aspects of rice weeds management in Asian-Pacific region, such as: impacts of climate change (N. E. Korres et al.); role of industry in managing rice weeds (H. Kraehmer et al.); herbicide resistant weeds (S. Iwakami and A. Uchino); herbicide tolerant rice (S. Sudakir et al.); biocontrol (A.K. Watson); allelopathy (H. Kato-Noguchi) and weedy rice (M. Rathore et al. ). The synthesis of region-wide or country-specific aspects of rice weeds and weed management in rice has also been made in the contributory chapters on South Asia (A.N. Rao et al. ); Southeast Asia ( V. Kumar et al.); Australia (N. Chandrasena et al.); China (J. Zhu et al.); USA (N. Roma-Burgos et al.); Japan (H. Watanabe and H. Morita) and Korea (I.Y. Lee et al.). Sixty one weed scientists from seventeen countries have made these contributions, representing USA (10 scientists); China (9); Japan (8); Philippines (7); Germany (6); Australia (5); India and Vietnam (3 each); Korea (2); Bangladesh, Canada, Greece, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Singapore and Sri Lanka (1 each).
