This project addressed the wider economic and sociological impacts of the Phalaris minor epidemic in Haryana, northern India, using four complementary research approaches.  a socio-economic audit to assess the contribution which environmental, management and socio-economic factors have upon the population dynamics of P. minor,  biological and ecological-based research using field experimentation to design a simulation model of the population dynamics of P. minor,  a programme of education and training based upon the audit and modelling studies for Indian scientists and extension officers and  an assessment of the genetic variability of P. minor biotypes in relation to ecological/agronomic impact.
