Weed Identification

Proper weed identification is a must for optimizing weed control operations. One of the educational efforts that we use at the Range Cattle Research and Education Center is the Forage and Weed Nursery. This nursery contains approximately 40 forages and 165 weed species commonly found in Florida pastures and rangeland. Funds for building the nursery were provided by Integrated Pest Management Florida, the South Florida Beef-Forage Program, and Dow AgroSciences.
