Get control of weeds with the "Weeds" ebook written by John Mason and staff of ACS Distance Education. This ebook is 71 pages aimed at giving you a better understanding of weeds in order to control them better.

This is a book written for those wanting to gain a solid foundation for identifying weeds, and through an understanding of how and where they grow, making good decisions about how to control them. Good weed control involves a holistic management of the problem; and to achieve this, the book helps you understand both non-chemical and chemical methods of control.

A weed is any plant that is growing where you don’t want it. A weed will compete with your desired plants for light, space, water and nutrients. A plant could also be a weed because of a particular characteristic; it could be poisonous to stock or humans, if it acts as a host plant to pests and diseases (of both other plants and/or animals), if it has damaging roots, or if it causes allergies.
