Growers need maps of the distribution of weeds in their fields to reduce herbicide use with site-specific weed management (SSWM). Methods of varying cost and complexity are needed for the widest adoption of SSWM. Our objective is to develop a system for mapping the variability of the distributions of weeds in dryland crops that is low cost, easy to use, and does not require expensive GIS, GPS and image analysis software.
