HERB, a computer-based expert system for soybean weed management developed at North Carolina State University, was evaluated for managing weeds under Georgia conditions. The project was initiated in two phases: a) training Cooperative Extension county agents followed by evaluation in six Georgia counties and b) revision, licensing, and distribution across the state. Field evaluations indicated that HERB was not highly accurate for predicting final yield loss because of weed species senescence and environmental extremes later in the growing season. HERB generally provided a reasonable prediction for a positive economic return due to treatment approximately 60% of the time. Accuracy was directly dependent upon the accuracy of weed-free yield estimates and extremes in growing conditions. HERB should not be the sole source of weed management information but may be useful to producers and county agents where mixed or low populations of weeds exist. The program was distributed statewide in 1993 after revision, duplication, and training was completed.
