Because managing weeds usually involves a combination of chemical and cultural methods, it should be based on a knowledge of the specific weeds to be controlled, the habitats in which thye are likely to occur and the means by which they enter and persist in a turfgrass community. This information is covered in the three chapters on weed taxonomy, ecology, and control; and constitutes the foundation on which a turf weed control program should be constructed. The subjects covered in this book embody in a microcosm the multidimensional nature of agriculture in all of its complexity-scientific, technical, environmental, and social.
