Description

Landscape managers spend more time and money controlling weeds than insects and diseases, so a clear understanding of weed biology and management strategies is important for successful and profitable landscape businesses.

  • Weed identification;
  • Chemical and non-chemical controls;
  • Weed life cycles; and
  • Other aspects of a modern weed control program
