What is a Weed?

A weed is any plant that is growing where you don’t want it. A weed will
compete with your desired plants for light, space, water and nutrients.
A plant could also be a weed because of a particular characteristic;
it could be poisonous to stock or humans, if it acts as a host plant
to pests and diseases (of both other plants and/or animals), if it has
damaging roots, or if it causes allergies.

Any plant has the potential to be a weed.

There are many different ways of controlling weeds, and literally
thousands of different weed species which might need controlling. It
is always important to use the appropriate treatment for the weed(s)
in question. Young weeds are far easier to control than older ones.
Some chemicals, for instance will effectively kill certain weeds when
they are in the early stages of growth, but will not control other types
of weeds. You may need to be able to distinguish between types of
weeds to determine whether the chemical will or won’t work.
