The aim of this bulletin has been to include only the worst weeds which are more or less general throughout the state, but the writer has also added other facts of interest and value about weeds. The successful man or woman of today must know a great deal more than formerly about his or her occupation and about good living if more profit and enjoyment are to be obtained from life. This bulletin contains more than a mere set of directions, by which one may come to know and destroy some weeds. How weeds destroy the value of labor, of crops, of livestock, of farms, and of human health, are explained by the author who has had many years of experience as a farmer, teacher, and investigator. It is hoped that those having special weed problems which are not included will be led to further study of the books and other sources mentioned at the end of the bulletin, and to further inquiry directed to the Experiment Station specialists.
