      Weeds are one of the major threats to Australia's natural environment. Major weed invasions change the natural diversity and balance of ecological communities. These changes threaten the survival of many plants and animals because the weeds compete with native plants for space, nutrients and sunlight. Tropical soda apple (Solanum viarum), first collected from Florida in , is now a common weed on , acres of pastures, roadsides, ditchbanks, cultivated land, and natural areas. It is listed as a noxious weed by FDACS and USDA.

        In order to effectively control weeds, one must first identify them. OSU Extension Educator Mark Landefeld discusses the weeds we typically find in Ohio hay and pasture fields.

Most seeds germinate in early spring, but germination may occur throughout the growing season.

      Project Methods General Procedures: Experiments will be initiated in areas naturally infested with weed species. Standard production practices will be followed. The test areas will be in pastures where a dense stand of weeds is present. Herbicides will be applied as sprays using small-plot application equipment calibrated to deliver L/ha at approximately kPa.

This publication is designed to help you identify common weeds found in southeastern North Carolina pastures, hayfields, and sprayfields.

It presents descriptions and pictures of some of the most common weeds, and it provides references for other weeds that are not in this publication. Weeds are categorized here as broadleaf, grass, or other, and as warm season or cool season. This. features detailed color photos of over weeds allowing turf professionals to search and identify weeds by name, appearance or region.

Detailed information about each weed includes description, non-chemical cultural practices in how to control the weed, geographic coverage maps of where they grow and when they are prevalent in the various growing zones, as well as herbicide use. Typically weeds develop a stronghold in weak areas of pastures such as feeding zones, around water troughs, high traffic areas, and loafing areas around shade.

Once weeds begin to establish, even in small areas, they start spreading and building a seed bank waiting for an opportunity to compete with forage grasses.

Manage weedson time: When you notice weed infestation in your pastures, you need to act in time to manage them appropriately. There are different methods of weed. Establish a perimeter. Pay special attention to the area adjoining your flower bed, garden, natural area or lawn and establish a weed-free perimeter.

Mow or mulch the area or pull or dig up weeds as they emerge. You’ll help to reduce the number of new weed seeds in the area you want to protect. Also, a good trimmer can make it easier to reach.

Prevention is any activity that keeps weeds from getting into your pasture. Many weeds are spread by seeds that are dispersed by hay bales, plants that reach maturity, livestock movements, mowing equipment, wind, water, and wildlife.

Weed competition in pasture systems has not been extensively examined. In addition, the bulk of the competition research in higher rainfall areas like the Northeast has been conducted in Australia or New Zealand, not in the United States. In pasture, weed control decisions are based largely on visual thresholds and intuition.

Weeds are managed to achieve overall land use goals and objectives. All weed management must be applied and evaluated over an extended time to be successful.

Mapping weed infestations is the first step in pasture, rangeland, and natural area weed management. Integrate two or more control methods into a system of management. Weed identification is the first step in weed control. In order to control a plant, you need to know what it is.

Different types of plants respond differently to control methods. Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West by Michael Moore.

One of several invaluable guides written by herbalist Michael Moore. This book covers plants ranging from Baja California to Alaska, featuring identification tips, medicinal uses, preparation, and contraindications for each herb—all infused with Moore’s characteristic wit and humor.

This handbook is designed as a quick and ready reference for weed control practices and herbicides used in various cropping systems or sites in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. This handbook will be useful to Extension agents, company field representatives, commercial spray applicators and consultants, herbicide dealers, teachers, and producers.
