Labor-intensive control programs such as hand-weeding have constrained growth in the nursery/landscape and greenhouse sectors. However, recent research efforts have expanded herbicide labels and resulted in several new herbicides for use in ornamental crops. Newer herbicides, improved methods of delivery and correct timing are just some of the topics discussed to reduce your costs and increase efficacy.
