Weeds are the unwanted plants found in your fields and gardens. They compete with your main crops for nutrients, moisture, and sunlight which can decrease the crop quality, raise production costs due to increased cultivation and hand weeding, and considerably reduce the crop yields. They also serve as the alternate hosts for insect/mite pests and diseases.

Types of weeds

  1. Grasses
  2. Sedges
  3. Broadleaf weeds
