GAINESVILLE, Fla. — To learn how to control weeds in natural areas, turn to the University of Florida’s new training manual, Natural Area Weed Management.
The 46-page, full-color publication, now available from UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is designed for those who apply herbicides to control invasive vegetation in natural areas of Florida.
The manual contains information on herbicide application and safety in natural areas, said Kenneth Langeland, professor of agronomy and author of the publication. He said the manual is one of two publications recommended for those seeking certification and licensing by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Priced at $12, the manual contains valuable information, photographs, tables and charts.
“The second manual, Identification and Biology of Non-Native Plants Found in Florida’s Natural Areas, is recommended for identifying invasive plants,” Langeland said. “The two manuals, developed as study guides for those seeking state certification, also are useful resources for land managers and others with an interest in identifying and managing invasive plants.”
Both publications are available through the UF/IFAS-Extension bookstore, PO Box 110011, Gainesville, Fla. 32611-0011. Call (352) 392-1764 to order the book. Make checks payable to the University of Florida. School purchase orders are also accepted. For credit card orders, call (800) 226-1764.
