Rights of Way
Every year, millions of miles of roads, utility lines, railroad corridors and other types of rights-of-way (ROWs) are treated with herbicides to control the growth of unwanted plants. However, increasing public concern over the use of dangerous and inadequately tested pesticides has re- sulted in an increasing effort over the last decade to pass state laws and local policies requiring notification of pesticide use, restrictions on application types and implementation of least-toxic approaches to vegetation.
Weed identification is a constant challenge for many of us. The best first step to plant ID is to have the appropriate reference materials on hand. Here are those that we find of most help in identifying weed samples.
This is a web version of a slide set developed in cooperation with the ISU Agribusiness Education Program. As more weed ID slides are developed they will be added. When viewing each slide, the buttons below the slide will move you ahead, back, or return to this listing.
Accurate weed identification is the first step in a successful weed control program. Various weed species respond differently to different methods of control. Whether you choose chemical, cultural or mechanical control measures, you need to know what weed species are present.
This photo gallery contains pictures of many plants that are common to North America. Some of the plant species listed are not generally considered weeds but may have toxic or poisonous properties, or are otherwise of general interest as wildflowers or herbs.
These pages are intended to aide in the identification of common weeds and weed seedlings found throughout Virginia and the Southeastern U.S. The weed pictures in this guide are arranged alphabetically by common name and may be viewed by clicking on one of the letters to the left.

Corn and soybean growers have a new option for selective postemergence control of tough broadleef weeds in corn and soybeans with new Cadet herbicide. Cadet delivers superior control of velvetleaf at very low rates and provides added control of pigweed, lambsquarters, waterhemp and nightshade.
