PS 4116 - Weed Science

In this course, emphasis is given to the biology of weed plants and weedy species, with a strong emphasis on weed identification. Students study the interactions between desired plants and weed plants as well as the reactions of weed plants to various environmental conditions and management practices. Much of the course outlines the many methods used, including non-chemical methods, to reduce the harmful effects of weed plants. With a goal toward minimal environmental impact and maximum economic benefit, students will learn how to properly mix, apply, and discard herbicides.
