One person's weed may well be another's treasure, but whether you are a home gardener or a giant of agribusiness, there are some plants you need to get rid of in order to improve your desired crop. In Solving Weed Problems, horticulturist Peter Loewer helps identify which plants truly are weeds, then shows you the best ways to eliminate them.Elegantly illustrated, this handbook recounts a short history of weeds and how they got to America, and lists the most stubbornly pernicious species of the twenty-first century. Plus, it gives you important facts on the pollination and germination of weed seeds, their longevity, and their methods of dispersal. Find out which herbicides - chemical or organic - work best in every situation. Even find out the special circumstances when you may actually want to cultivate rather than eradicate certain weeds.
