This introduction to the principles of weed science prepares readers to analyze real-life weed control problems and to develop integrated, practical approaches to solving them. Comprehensive in coverage and unique in presentation, it blends basic information on plant systems, soil systems, control methods, and management systems, and discusses various plants and herbicides by groups to provide an integrated framework from which to extend information to many different situations. For readers interested in weed science.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook for an introductory college course, but also potentially useful as a reference for practitioners in agriculture, pest management, and other fields. Assuming readers will arrive with a wide range of experience and learning, provides background on such matters as plant structure and function, soils, and tillage equipment and practices. Emphasizes the application of the major concepts and principles in various situations. No date is noted for the first edition; the second adds a chapter on the impact of changing technology, particularly in biology. A chapter also considers aquatic weeds. The glossary does not indicate pronunciation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
