More Publications from IFAS

Here are a few more nursery production publications you might like to take a look at. 
I see ragweed parthenium in some of the nurseries that I visit.  The biotype that I saw did not completely die with the application of glyphosate.  It merely lost some leaves and then bounced back.  Here is a new factsheet about it.

Identification, Impacts, and Control of Ragweed Parthenium (Parthenium hysterophorus L.) (ENH1187/EP448)

One of the worlds most invasive weeds, this member of the Asteraceae family is a problem in Africa, Australia, India, and is increasingly a problem in Florida. Learn more in this 10-page fact sheet was written by Robert H. Stamps, and published by the UF Department of Environmental Horticulture, December 2011. http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ep448

Also from IFAS, a publication about changing from plastic pots to other materials.  You can save oil and use a sustainable product.

Alternatives to Petroleum-Based Containers for the Nursery Industry (ENH1193/EP454)
