Applied Weed Science: Including the Ecology and Management of Invasive Plants / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Prentice Hall
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.
