Based on the acclaimed Encyclopaedia of Arable Weeds and developed in association with ADAS, the BASF Weed ID App aims to provide an easy to use reference guide to the major broad-leaved weeds and grass-weeds in the UK supporting weed identification of 140 species.
The BASF Weed ID App brings weed identification right up to date, forgoing the need to take books into the field to identify potential weed species. Whatever crop you are growing, it is an essential part of good agricultural practice to know the weed species you need to control in order to use the most appropriate herbicide. This App has been designed to be an easy to use in-field practical aid to Crop Advisors, Growers, Trainee Agronomists and Agricultural Students. Correctly identifying weeds is the first step to effective control – download our smart, easy to use tool today.

* Mapmyweed tool to help pinpoint location of weeds on a map; assign name, size of patch and year
* Option to photograph the weed in your field and use to directly compare with images in the App library
* Export your weed photo and it’s GPS location by email to customers / colleagues at the touch of a button.
* Simple and fast interface
Although there are many weeds in the database, you can only access that information if you know the common or scientific name. I thought that a "weed id" app would let me find the weed by its physical characteristics ... not true. Once you guess the leaf style and flower color and style, an ID is given. That's just not enough degrees of separation.
Enter lobed leaves, erect daisy type flower with yellow color and you don't get dandelion. Nice start; but would still be disappointing as a FREE app. For the price, I really expected something useful.
not for the US
Guess i missed the part about it being for the UK. Some weeds listed are in US but many many many are not. Wish I had paid more attention. Spent $4.99 on a app I can't use , but thats my fault. Looks like a good start to a fine app. Keep working on it BASF. Looking forward to the US version.
So limited. I can name more than those listed. Very disappointed and feel my money should be refunded.
