The first attempt to simplify and organize man's scattered knowledge of weeds, this text brings together in one volume almost everything that is known about
the principal weeds of the world. Part one describes 76 destructive species in full detail, with emphasis on 18 of the worst species in the order of their impact on agriculture. It is supplemented by line drawings and world distribution maps. Data is presented on methods of propagation, the life history of each species, and world distribution by crop. Part two discusses 16 of the world's most important crops in terms of the major weeds known to infest them. This book will be of great value to
people who farm large or small acreages anywhere in the world, and will have special interest to weed scientists, students of agriculture, extension personnel, professional botanists, and herbicidal technologists.
