GRDC Weeds: The Ute Guide
This application is designed to be used in the paddock by growers to assist in identifying the most common, annual, biennial and perennials weeds in Southern Australia. Where possible photographs have been provided of the weed at various growth stages to ensure correct identification. Each weed has a calendar to show which month/s the weed is likely to be present in the paddock.
The application allows users to search, identify, compare and email photographs of weeds to their networks.
NEW! Now also available as an Android™ app on Google play and for the iPhone and iPad on the App Store
