Weed Control—A Record of Achievement

  • K. P. Buchholtz (a1)


The present importance of the discipline of weed control is outlined. More acres in the United States are treated today for weed control than for the control of insects or plant diseases, despite disparity in personnel engaged; e.g., a total in the North Central region of 44 men in weed control, 176 in entomology and 177 in plant pathology.
