Watch for a newly revised edition that will be available in the store mid June, 2015.
The guide is a 14 x 21 cm, 160 page spiral bound book printed in color and covering 73 plants species, including 60 broadleaf and 13 grass species. For each species the guide includes a photo of the cotyledon leaves, first true leaves, rosettes (where applicable), mature plants, and seeds. Symbols in the upper left indicate whether the plant is primarily a weed of cropland or rangeland. Cotyledon leaf shape icons along with colored bars separate species by cotyledon shape (forbs) and ligule characteristics (grasses). An introduction covers basic tenets of weed management and how weed seedling identification is essential to a successful weed management program.
