Commercialization of agricultural activities and being followed by widespread use of agricultural herbicides in agricultural production causes serious environmental problemst. Despite policy makers alert to need to achieve sustainable agriculture, most farmers looking to achieve maximum production and among in this regard, they have the least considering to environmental aspect of production. Due to this problem, this paper tried to study the consistency of farmers' economic and environmental behavior to manage weeds using a cross sectional data of 180 wheat growers in Khorasan Razavi selected in 2009 as selected by random sampling method and using regression and spearman correlation coefficients. The results showed, that farmers in the use of pure technology and 3, 4 and 5 scenarios in the environmental management of weeds, increase farmers' income and the amount of chemical pesticide per unit area decreases, that this relationship indicating consistency of farmers' economic goals (gross incomes) and environmental goals (reduction of chemical pesticide use) to weeds management of wheat farms. In other conditions correlation coefficient is also positive and show inconsistency of farmers' economic and environmental goals. Therefore recommended to planners and policy makers with coordination the Executive to promote agriculture in the province to promote and expand the use of methods of environmental management of weeds in wheat.
