About 60 live weeds are on display in various stages of development.

The first step in weed management is plant identification.

“The North Dakota State University Carrington Research Extension Center has a weed arboretum to assist with this first step,” says Greg Endres, NDSU Extension cropping systems specialist at the center.

About 60 live weeds are on display in various stages of development. The weeds are grouped by biology, including annual broadleaves and grasses, winter annuals, biennials and perennials. Also, the majority of North Dakota’s noxious weeds are in the display.

“This resource is intended for farmers, crop advisers and people managing weeds in yards and gardens,” Endres says.

It is south of the center’s main office building. Individuals can visit the site anytime. Also, tours can be arranged for individuals or groups who would like details on weed identification, biology and control.

For more information, contact the center at 701-652-2951 or by email at gregory.endres@ndsu.edu.
