Mobile app IDs weeds and plants quickly and accurately

081922 picture this.jpgThere are several weed-identification guides available for consumers and turf management professionals alike. There is one that superintendents can carry around in their pockets that can help identify thousands of plants and weeds quickly and accurately.

The PictureThis mobile app can precisely identify more than 10,000 weeds and plants in a matter of seconds. Developed by the Chinese artificial intelligence firm Glority, PictureThis was named the most accurate plant-identification mobile app by a Michigan State University study.

The app, which is available on the App Store and Google Play, is free for a seven-day trial, then is $30 per year.

Users can save plants into their own personal library. The app then provides plant-specific information such as optimal growing conditions, water needs, geographic areas where the plant thrives, when and how to plant and when to harvest, when to water and when to fertilize.

Another section provides benefits (if any), how does a plant spread and tips on how to eradicate it.
