How to Use Less “Toxic” Weed Control
This two-hour course for design professionals begins by defining what a weed is and explores the benefits of some "weed" species and the differences between native and non-native invasive weed species. Then the course dives into the strategies, resources and practices used to control weeds by less "toxic" means, including chemical and non-chemical methods and organic and plant-based herbicides. The course concludes with assisting learners in choosing the best weed control practice for their situation and discussing the benefits of Integrated Weed Management.
