Weed control, Cost analysis

On my bookshelf is a handbook entitled "War on Weeds" or "How to Double our Food Supply."
In many of these countries experiments have been made to ascertain as far as possible the exact damage done by weeds to crops.
Result: In all the experiments, whether made in England or abroad, the mean loss was over 50 per cent.
The level of loss is equally true today, but the methods at our disposal for handling weeds have improved tremendously.
