Weed control is the botanical component of pest control, stopping weeds from reaching a mature stage of growth when they could be harmful to domesticated plants and livestock by physical and chemical methods.

In order to reduce weed growth, many “weed control” strategies have been developed in order to contain the growth and spread of weeds.

The most basic is ploughing which cuts the roots of annual weeds. Today, chemical weed killers known as herbicides are widely used.
One can do weed / vegetation control under any of the following circumstances:

Road reserves, fire breaks, paving, electrical substations, sports fields, river banks, under power lines, under electrical fencing,

dams, lakes, rivers, opens spaces where there is hiding places for criminals, and on farm land to preserve water.
