Best Management Practices Manual for Non-Chemical Weed Control
This manual, available as a free download, provides comprehensive descriptions of 21 non-chemical weed control techniques used in California. It also provides descriptions of biological control agents targeting 18 of California's most challenging weeds.
Compiled by researchers and practitioners, the manual includes tips on how to use techniques, the kinds of plants and environments in which they work best, and the associated risks.
These Best Management Practices (BMPs) form the foundation for an online decision support tool being developed in partnership with the University of California Agriculture & Natural Resources, with funding from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation.
The report can be downloaded as a free pdf document from this web page: https://www.cal-ipc.org/resources/library/publications/non-chem/
