Weeds - Control Without Poisons
“Low biological activity is inherent in each weed problem ... Each weed is keyed to a specific environment slotted for its proliferation.” So says Weeds — Control Without Poisons author Charles Walters. Further, calcium, magnesium, potassium and other elements in equilibrium are likely to roll back more weeds than all the available herbicides on the market.
Specifics on a hundred weeds, why they grow, what soil conditions spur them on or stop them, what they say about your soil, and how to control them without the obscene presence of poisons. All cross-referenced by scientific and various common names, and a pictorial glossary.
Copyright 1991, 1999, softcover, 352 pages. 28 per case.

A lot of good information
Very enlightening. Early research that we seem to have overlooked. Recommended for any gardener, farmer, rancher. We need to get back to the basics and stop this chemical rain on our land.
Really quite interesting read. Informative, will be interesting to implement some of the author’s ideas!

This is an intriguing read. I'm not sure if the approach laid out in this book works for every ****, because I haven't tried it. It does seem to be pretty accurate for the weeds I have.
Great book. We recently moved from the city to a small farm. Outdoor life is very different. Rural plants, vegetation and weeds are abundant. This book was super helpful!!!
