Weed Identification

These short stand-alone videos are for the identification of specific plants, considered to be weeds. Many of them are small portions of classes that we offer from time to time for CEUs for those working in agriculture or the green industry.

For more information or to check on class offerings visit our Commercial Pesticide Applicator – IPM Classes or Landscape Contractor Classes pages regularly as new classes are added throughout the year. Or, have these updates and more emailed directly to your inbox by signing up for the Green Industry News newsletter.

These short videos are a part of our monthly newsletter, Green Industry News. Occasionally, we may offer classes related to pruning, but not specific to certain plants. These videos are either presented to be timely to the appropriate season when the pruning should be done or are generic to the art and science of pruning.
