Product description

"Weed Control" describes the basic biology of weeds and the characteristics of weed species. The methods of control - manual, animal-powered and engine-driven cultivation methods, biological, cultural and chemical control - are described and illustrated in detail, together with the main herbicides and their application measures. Preventative measures and how to choose a control method are included to stress the importance of appropriate methods. This volume continues by describing weed control in all the main annual and perennial tropical crops, and concludes with botanical details and control measures for the main tropical weed species.
