Weedy and invasive plants can be found in all ecosystems – from natural to agricultural to urban. Without intervention, crop yields decline, waterways become clogged, and natural disasters, like wildfire, are hastened to the detriment of plants, animals, and the livelihoods of people. ARS has been one of the leaders in weed science research covering topics ranging from the development and use of integrated weed management tactics to basic mechanistic studies associated with subjects such as invasion resistance by desirable plant communities to herbicide resistance of several of the most troublesome crop and rangeland weeds. ARS weed scientists work in agronomic and horticultural crops, pasture forests and wild land systems, and wetlands and riparian areas.
The ARS Weed Science Newsletter has been developed as a source for stakeholders, researchers, and the general public to find the latest research information on weed and invasive plant science.
