The alternative weed control of maize crop, based on absent chemical products, consists in mechanical and manual hoeing weed control and is an ecological alternative. This alternative could be easily adopted in an integrated weed management system owing to the regional traditions and success all over the world. We studied a very importantcrop – maize, in 11 types: mechanical hoeing, manual hoeing and a combination of both. The results collected from 2009 to 2011, showed the best solution which has to be adopted in order to obtain a good yield both quantitatively and qualitatively. We measured the weed number between rows and the plant rows. The decrease in the weeding level resulted in an increased average grain yield, from 4410 kg/ha to 8775 kg/ha.
