Common Weeds of Crops and Gardens in Southern AfricaCommon Weeds of Crops and Gardens in Southern Africa
This comprehensive publication only comprises the identification of the different weeds and not the control thereof. It is critically important to identify the weed correctly (even in an early growth stage), before chemical control can be considered. Weeds also play an important role in other disciplines, like entomology and plant pathology, where either insects or fungi, bacteria and viruses may survive, hibernate or reproduce in or on weeds, from where they can infect crops. Detailed photographs and short descriptions, together with the common names of the weeds ensure implementation of cost-effective and sufficient control measures, minimizing the danger of contamination and ensure continuous production, regardless of the scale of farming.

This bilingual publication contains the latest technological information that has been gleaned from primarily the ARC-Grain Crops Institute's need-driven bean research programme. The objective is to supply reliable and scientifically verified information for improved decision-making on dry bean crop management, that will in turn lead to improved productivity and subsequently higher profits for producers.  The information in the manual is primarily of a medium to long term nature, while short term production information that changes on an annual basis, such as cultivar choice and pesticide availability, will be communicated through the Dry Bean Producers' Organisation's (DPO) magazine, SA Droëbone/Dry Beans.
