Catalog ID: 24255
A web-based system was developed to advise on the relative efficacy of different herbicides for mixes of weed and crop species at different times of the year in a forestry or farm forestry setting. The system assumes that weed identification and impact assessment or prediction have already been accomplished and that there are no cost-effective non-chemical alternatives. The expert system produces a relative suitability index for each herbicide, as well as an English language discussion of the case.
