A host of developments--including an increased usage of low-till crop systems; environmental concerns about both the run-off of agrochemicals and soil conservation; and the need for better weed control in non-agricultural settings--have all combined to create a need for this major revision of the widely used, basic reference first pioneered by Glen C. Klingman and Floyd M. Ashton. This edition brings the outstanding coverage of previous editions up to date with current principles and practices in the field.
