“The second edition of this convenient, pocket-size booklet helps producers and others correctly identify weed seedlings,” said provincial weed specialist Nicole Kimmel. “Proper identification allows you to take the appropriate measures to deal with weeds.”

The $10 coil-bound publication features information on 62 broad-leaved weeds and 10 grasses. Weeds are organized by cotyledon (seed-leaf) shape to make identification easier, and the book has seed-leaf shape drawings and full-colour weed seedling images, along with a table of commonly confused weeds.
