Weeds of the West

Learning to identify unwanted plants around the home, farm, or ranch will be much easier with a book published by the Western Society of Weed Science and cosponsored by Cooperative Extension of the Western States. Weeds of the West is an extensive publication which can help you identify plants that compete with native plants, horticultural and agricultural crops as well as those that can poison livestock and people.

This extensive, easy-to-use guide contains more than 900 color photographs showing the early growth stages, mature plants and features for positive identification of each weed discussed. Descriptions, habitats and characteristics of each plant are also in this 650 page book.
