Farmers and graziers contend with many pests and diseases of theircrops, pastures and livestock, but weeds are perhaps the most widespreadand persistent of these problems. Weed control technology has progressedat a formidable rate in recent years with the development of anincreasingly wide range of herbicides and application techniques, andthere have also been major advances in the use of biological control.However, the correct identification of weeds is the starting point indeciding how to control them.
