Pub. Date: 2017
View website >
A comprehensive guide to weed management in the Pacific Northwest. Covers biological weed control agents, pesticide safety and disposal, agrichemicals and their properties, and control of problem weeds. Contains sections on weed control in cereal grain crops; grass seed crops; forage and seed crops; legumes; oilseed crops; irrigated field crops; aquatics; forestry; orchards and vineyards; small fruits; vegetable crops; vegetable seed crops; Christmas trees; nursery, greenhouse, and bulb crops; professional landscape maintenance; turfgrass; home landscapes and gardens; pasture and rangeland; and noncropland and right-of-way. In each section, products are listed along with application rates, timing, and other remarks. Includes a glossary, conversion tables, chemical application calculations, and a full index.
The handbook is updated biannually (March and June). Individual articles are revised once a year. Revision dates are listed at the beginning of each article and in the mini table of contents at the beginning of each section.
The 2017 revision features a few organizational changes. The "Oilseed Crops" section is now called "Oils and Fiber" and includes mint, while the rest of the section previously called "Irrigated Field Crops" has been separated into individual crop sections: corn, hops, potatoes, and sugar beets. Consequently, each section of the handbook has been assigned a new letter.
The handbook is 3-ring binder ready, published as a package with full-color slip cover and spine and 3-hole drilled body. Binder not included.
Editor: E. Peachey, Revised March 2017, 638 pages.
