^: Contrasting approaches to integrated weed management (IWM) for prairie cropping systems were evaluated by measuring weed response to six IWM systems in a wheat-oilseed rape-barley-pea rotation at Saskatoon and Watrous, Saskatchewan, Canada. The six IWM systems (high herbicide/zero tillage; medium herbicide/zero tillage; low herbicide/zero tillage; low herbicide/low tillage; medium herbicide/medium tillage; no herbicide/high tillage) included various combinations of seeding rate and date, herbicide timing and rate, and tillage operations, in order to achieve similar weed management levels. Changes in weed communities were assessed over 4 years by monitoring species composition and abundance at various times during the growth season. Principal response curves indicated a gradual increase in Thlaspi arvense, Chenopodium album, Amaranthus retroflexus and Fallopia convolvulus in the no herbicide/high tillage system. Winter and early spring annuals and perennials increased in most systems, but particularly in the low herbicide/zero tillage and medium herbicide/zero tillage systems. Although five of the six IWM systems provided similar results, changes in weed communities would suggest that operations could be revised to improve the overall management of certain weed species and reduce seed return in the no herbicide/high tillage system and in systems with low herbicide inputs and zero tillage. This study confirms the potential of contrasting IWM systems under the challenging environmental conditions of the Canadian Prairies. aref1
