Field bindweed is one of the most common noxious weeds in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) and one of the most difficult to control. Crop yields often are reduced 50 percent or more where field bindweed infestations are dense. It has a deep root system that competes with crop plants for water and soil nutrients. This 12-page 4-color publication covers Idaho, Washington, and Oregon state laws, along with descriptions of it and similar species. More than 7 pages are devoted to the control and management of this pest. Authors say "with diligence, field bindweed root systems can be eliminated by integrating the use of biological, mechanical, and chemical control agents," described in this publication.
