Abstract
The final impression I derived from this Conference is that herbicides must form an important weapon in the farmer's arsenal for increasing the productivity of his land and of his labour. They are no panacea for bad farming so their use will be restricted to the better farmers, and their economic justification will be easiest on the higher priced crops. But East Africa cannot carry out all the development work necessary for their most economical use, so must expect to have much closer liaison with other workers in Central and South Africa on the local problems, and with the workers in the United Kingdom and America on the more general problems than has been common in the past.
