The Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice) launched a new app, called RiceAdvice-WeedManager in April 2018. The app aims to help African rice farmers to find the most effective and cost-efficient weed management strategies, matching their specific farming conditions and available resources.

The WeedManager app has been developed in close association with Co-Capacity, The Netherlands, with support from the CGIAR Research Program on Rice Agri-food Systems (RICE). It is strongly based on research findings of AfricaRice and its partners, who have long been involved in developing efficient weed management strategies that are affordable and feasible for resource-poor rice farmers in sub-Saharan Africa.
