CROP WEEDS
Wilding, J. L. and Barnett, A. G. and Amor, R. L.
ISBN: 0909605386
Inkata Press Melbourne 1986 First Edition
 Paperback With colour photographic illustrations throughout, Identifies 117 weeds, a very good copy. The first step in controlling weeds is to recognise those that are present as the response of different species to herbicides or other control methods will often vary. This book is a straightforward guide to the identification of the main weeds, particularly in their seedling stage. In temperate crops (wheat, oats, barley, triticale, lupins, field peas. Chickpeas, safflower, sunflower, linseed and rapeseed) throughout Australia. It is critical to identify weeds at the earliest possible stage so that they can be controlled before seriously reducing crop yields.Common and scientific names are used for each of the 117 weeds. Their life cycles and the appearance of the seeds, seedlings and mature plants are described and illustrated. Weeds occurring in fallows are noted as their control is important in Australia where chemical or mechanical fallows are widely used to conserve moisture for crops. This practical publication enables farmers and others to identify all the important weed seedlings as well as the mature plants. The text is brief and recognition of the species relies mainly on drawings and photographs of weeds and their seeds. Crop Weeds is an essential manual for farmers, agricultural research and extension agencies, universities and agricultural colleges, and companies offering services to farmers.; 295 x 210mm; vi, 153 pages Near Fine
