When Weeds Talk
This is the 2nd edition of the book formerly titled Weeds and Why They Grow. Acres U.S.A. has long shown that weed control lies in fertility management. Every weed grows in a somewhat narrow window of allowable soil conditions. For the first time, hundreds of weeds of commercial importance are detailed along with the chemical analysis of accompanying soils. For example, burdock grows in soils with very high levels of iron and sulfate, very low levels of calcium and manganese. Balance the soil, lose the weed.

Worth the purchase
Good information laid out well and updater from the original.
Great and Insightful, revise needed
It is a fantastic book and will be read yearly. This book is full of useful nuggets. I would love for a revised version to expand or fill in throughout, would pay $100 for a revised copy.
It is not organized well or well documented on the sources of the text. Type-os and spelling errors don't really add the the legitimacy of the text either. I was hoping for more.
