Weed control can be one of the most costly risks in the production of container-grown nursery crops. Any control program begins with correct identificaiton of the weeds present, along with an understanding of their life cycles and modes of reproduction and spread. Below are the most common weeds of outdoor container nurseries and some recently introduced species with the potential to spread. The Species in this bulletin are organized by type, family, and species.

Irrigation is practical for many North Carolina farmers. Because irrigation can be expensive, however, there is much to consider before deciding to irrigate.

Postharvest cooling is the process of removing field heat and preparing crops for cold storage. Postharvest cooling is vital for extending the shelf life of produce (Slama and Diffley, 2013). Postharvest cooling should not be confused with longer-term cold storage, which will be discussed later in Chapter 3.
