    I'm looking for the address or link to a web site we have used in the past. I think it is from one of the universities. It starts out by asking you if its a grassy or broadleaved weed, then if its conifer or simple leaf or compound, are the leaves opposite or alternate, ect. Then each time you answer it gives you a new question until you reached the weed you have. It had great pictures also. I had it tag in my favorites but lost it some how. Any help? PR

    NO. Weed alert is a good learning tool. But the site we are looking for was the fastest and easiest way to ID a weed I have ever seen.

    This might be it... If not I use it occasionally and works great. I really like that it has a place that's basically if the answer is I don't know click here.

    My guess is most of the universities must have one. I really like that Michigan State site. Also University of Wisconsin's. http://weedid.wisc.edu/weedid.php but I still do not see the one we had been using.

    PR that link from UW extension is decent but you need to be vague with it. Personally I found going back to Scotts Weed Id handout book to be best.
