000261464 520__ $$aSmall farmers in the Eastern Caribbean generally rely on a sequence of manual operations for weed control. Gramoxone is the most commonly used weedkiller, but its use may be limited to land preparation, especially in food crop systems, and in tree crop systems. The labour-intensive nature of the existing systems may lead to delays in weed control, where other farm activities have a prior demand on labour. Changes to the components of weed control systems should recognise the holistic nature of the farm system. Changes should not unduly increase cash costs, unless additional income can be generated, not displace labour that cannot be gainfully employed elsewhere (on the farm), nor adversely affect food supplies and food security. ----- Pequerios agricultores de la region Este del Caribe, generalmente siguen y dependen de una serie de operaciones manuales, para cI control de las hierbas. EI herbicida de mas uso es el Grarnoxone, pero su uso puede que se limite a la preparacidn del terre no a cultivar, especialmente en los sistemas de cultivos alimenticios y de frutales, La naturaleza de la labor intensiva de los sistemas presentes, puede ocasionar retrazos en el control de las hierbas, especialmente, cuando otras labores de finca requieran prioridad, Los carnbios en los cornponentes del sistema del control de hierbas deben hacerse, reconociendo Ia naturaleza total de los sistemas de la finca, Los cam bios ha efectuarse 0 ya efectuados no deben incrementar indebidamente los gastos monetarios, a no ser que se pueda generar renta adicional, tarnpoco deben desplazar a los trabajadores a no ser de un trabajo a otro en la misma finca, y ni tampoco deben tener un efecto adverso en el suministro ni en la garantia de obtencidn de los alimentos.
