Weeds of Container Nurseries in the United States – Online ID Key

Weed control can be one of the most costly risks in the production of container-grown nursery crops. Any control program begins with the correct identification of the weeds present, along with an understanding of their life cycles and modes of reproduction and spread. Treated here are the most common weeds of outdoor container nurseries, as well as a selection of recently introduced species with the potential to spread. This work is based in large part on Weeds of Container Nurseries (Neal & Derr 2005), but builds on that treatment through the addition of multi-access keys, taxa, and images. The content is optimized for mobile use and should be accessible from standard browsers on nearly any device, whether desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
