Introduction to Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds are usually very easy to identify. They look different from grasses and are physiologically different than grasses. The physiological difference allows for the use of selective weed control methods to control broadleaf weeds without injury to the desirable grass and inhabitants like earthworms.
