Abstract

A weed has been defined as "a plant growing out of place" and this definition is f » appropriate in the case of Mesquite. A tree or shrub grown for shade and ornamental purposes and bearing nutritious pods would appear to be welcome everywhere but, under some conditions, Mesquite has undesirable characteristics which outweigh its advantages and have provided a major agricultural problem.
