Many of our most problematic weeds are broadleaf weeds. The best way to control them varies depending on the species, so it is imperative that weeds are identified correctly. In this session we'll go over some of the key distinguishing characteristics of the most problematic broadleaf weeds in NY field crops. For each species, we'll discuss some of the biology that makes it weedy and look for potential "Achilles heals" that can be exploited for management. We'll also review best practices for using smartphone weed ID apps.
