Weed ID App Review
University of Missouri has come up with Weed ID an app that helps users identify what kind of weed they are dealing with. This is a great way for garden enthusiasts, parents, and teachers to identify weeds around the school or house. Knowing what kind of weeds you’re dealing with helps save money & time when trying to buy herbicides or weed killers.
3 Ways to Use the App:
- Look-up weeds in an alphabetical list
- Search bar – if you have a good guess type in the weed and it will bring up pictures and a detailed description to try and help you understand if you identified correctly.
- ID Weeds by Plant Features – This is the option I have used the most. If you are not sure of the identity of the weed you can answer a series of questions that will help narrow down your search.
I really like this app as a tool for helping identify weeds especially when visiting a region I’m not familiar with. It’s very accurate and gets you an answer very quickly. In comparison to other weed ID apps I like that it doesn’t push products and only shows facts.
