Rather, farmer's experience in WHEAT cultivation, farm ownership, WHEAT cultivation area and percentage of weed losses to WHEAT have positive and significant effect and perennial weeds has negative and significant effect on use of chemical method of WEED CONTROL. Number of agricultural family labor, weeds control in vegetative growth stage, percentage of weeds losses and awareness index of resistance to herbicide have positive and significant effect and farmer's age and number of WHEAT farms pieces have negative and significant effect on using of mechanical method for weeds management. Also, WHEAT cultivation experience, farm ownership and WHEAT cultivation area have positive and significant effects on crop rotation for weeds control.
