Abstract: Dominant weed species in smallholder farming systems are broadleaved annuals and perennials, and grasses. The most common and difficult to control broadleaved weed species on smallholder farms are (Wandering dew), (Mexican clover), (Yellow nutsedge), (Purple nutsedge) and (Witchweed). The common grasses on smallholder farms are (Rapoko grass) and Cynodon dactylon (Couch grass). These weed species are found in all agroecological regions of Zimbabwe and other southern African countries.
