Though primarily intended for farm crop producers and consultants, the ISU Extension Weed Identification Field Guide, CSI 0003, should also be useful to horticulturists, Master Gardeners and homeowners who want to better understand weeds and their life cycles.
The Weed Identification Field Guide is now available electronically as an e-book and, for the first time, downloadable on iPad. The publication is distributed by the Iowa Soybean Association (ISA) and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach. Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, has sponsored the capability for users to download the electronic versions for no charge.
The Weed Identification Field Guide includes images and descriptions of 56 broadleaf weeds and 19 grass and grass-like weeds, and tools to aid in accurate weed identification.
