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.

Really enjoyed and a great reference.
It further validates our research that deficient calcium is the driver of most soil health issues. It is one of my go to books when working with clients.
Kinda difficult to follow. Seems like a bunch of random thoughts. Not in any particular order. Very factual and leaves for interesting speculation.
This is a wonderful reference with botanical names and great insights. My only wish would be photos, but with so many online sources it’s easy to find what I need. It’s an affordable resource which I truly appreciate!
I love how this book helps me to understand the strengths and weaknesses of weeds. I was able to diagnose a friend's field issue from 1000 miles away based on his complaints of some weeds. When I told him what the weeds were saying, he acknowledged that he did have those specific problems. Now he also knows how to reduce his **** issues by changing the soil environment!
