For those confounded by weeds rearing their ugly heads on the golf course this spring, a digital resource from the University of Missouri makes identifying weeds and developing a management plan easier than ever.

Missouri's Weed ID Guide provides information on more than 450 species of broadleaf and grassy weeds. The guide includes descriptions on each plant’s life cycle and growth characteristics, as well as identifiable features, such as leaf structure, and descriptions of stems and flower and fruit, and other characteristics. 

Multiple photographic images of each plant also help with identification.

Users also can cross reference their search by grassy or broad-leaf weed type, common name or Latin name for 461 weed species.

The site also includes a searchable database that references scientific research by weed species, year and specific herbicide used.
