This site is the turf professional's online source for weed control options. The site gives you germination dates and you can select the U.S. region (western, north central, southern, northeastern) or click the first letter of the weed you are looking for. Then you get a picture of the weed and click the picture to get all the information on the weed. You also get information on cultural practices and herbicide use.
www.rce.rutgers.edu/weeds (Rutgers University)
This site is hosted by Rutgers University and features lots of photos and description of weeds. You can type in a weed search or searches through thumbnail images to find the weed you are looking for. Thumbnail images are small pictures that have been reduced in size to increase the speed that a website can load onto your computer screen. To see the full size picture simply click on the thumbnail image. This site is mainly for weed identification and not weed control.
