Chemical weed control measurers require all of us to know the names of many weeds since some chemicals will control certain weeds and not others.
Common weeds will be on display for identification as to their proper common name. Twenty-five fresh samples of summer type weeds will be chosen for the contest. Scoring will be numerical based on 100 points. Participants are encouraged to use correct spellings and complete common names.

A reference that can be used for contest preparation is Extension Publication MP-169 “Weeds of Arkansas Lawns, Turfs, Roadsides and Recreation Areas”.
