Crop and Weed Identification DVD
A new software program, the “Interactive Encyclopedia of
North American Weeds” may be of interest to you. It offers
more than 2,400 photographs covering 447 of the most important weeds
and crops in the United States and Canada. The illustrated glossary
of 565 botanical terms is a program in itself! A unique illustrated
interactive identification key now covers all of the weeds in the
program. The professionally narrated lessons provide nearly three
hours of interactive instruction on the basics of plant taxonomy
needed to identify plants.
After 12 years of development, the program provides a balanced
and fully integrated teaching and reference resource for weed, crop,
and plant identification. The DVD is an excellent resource for teaching
plant taxonomy and weed identification courses, basic botany, agronomy,
and horticulture courses, and high school biology and vocational
agriculture courses. A presentation maker feature allows an instructor
or presenter to create a custom path through the program. Professional
agronomists, horticulturalists, grounds keepers, landscapers, turf
managers, gardeners, herbalists, botanists, and all manner of plant
enthusiasts will enjoy the extensive descriptions, distribution
maps, habitat key, World of Weeds weed history articles, and the
unique visual weed and crop identification key.
