Fundamentals of Weed Science

כריכה קדמית
Elsevier, 6 בספט׳ 2007 - 688 עמודים
This book addresses herbicides and their use as an important aspect of modern weed management, and strives to place them in an ecological framework. Many weed scientists believe agriculture is a continuing struggle with weeds - without good weed control, good and profitable agriculture is impossible. Each agricultural discipline sees itself as central to agriculture's success and continued progress, and weed science is no exception. While not denying the importance of weed management to successful agriculture, this book places it in a larger ecological context. The roles of culture, economics, and politics in weed management are also discussed, enabling scientists and students to understand the larger effects on society.

NEW TO THIS EDITION:

  • Information on New herbicides included, along with the old herbicides that are important for understanding the history
  • New section on weed resistance to herbicides and genetic engineering
  • New information on invasive plants
  • Expanded chapters on Biological Control, Pesticide Legislation and Regulation, Weed Management Systems, and more

עמוד 3 - Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, | And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum.
עמוד 4 - Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
עמוד 5 - BOWED by the weight of centuries he leans Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face, And on his back the burden of the world. Who made him dead to rapture and despair, A thing that grieves not and that never hopes, Stolid and stunned, a brother to the ox? Who loosened and let down this brutal jaw? Whose was the hand that slanted back this brow? Whose breath blew out the light within this brain?
עמוד 4 - Bowed by the weight of centuries he leans Upon his hoe and gazes on the ground, The emptiness of ages in his face, And on his back the burden of the world.
עמוד 4 - Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field...
עמוד 3 - So, nat'ralists observe, a flea Hath smaller fleas that on him prey, And these have smaller fleas to bite 'em, And so proceed ad infinitum...
עמוד 4 - Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles ? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit ; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
