There are as many different ideas about favorite crops, plants and flowers as there are farmers and gardeners, but everyone can agree on at least one thing: weeds are no fun! Whether they're crowding out your perennials or getting in the way of healthy forage, weeds present an ongoing challenge for anyone who wants to grow anything.

UGA Extension provides advice on controlling and preventing common weeds like crabgrass, pigweed, henbit, and chickweed to help commercial farmers and home gardeners have the most trouble-free growing seasons possible.
