Weed Identification Guide

Managing weeds starts with identifying the problem

Weed control is the nursery industry’s No. 1 pest management expense when you include application labor, chemical costs and other weed maintenance costs over the life of a crop. University experts estimate the overall cost of weed control in a container nursery can be more than $4,000 per acre. Time spent hand-weeding crops diverts precious labor resources from other important nursery activities. Additionally, unabated weed growth in and around a commercial nursery harbors potentially invasive insects, mites and disease pests that cause growers further pest management issues.

Managing weeds starts with identifying the problem, so we’ve compiled a list of common broadleaf weeds, grasses and sedges.
