Abstract: In this study, the flora of the weeds, which is one of the most important factors adversely affecting agricultural production in Eskişehir and environs, was investigated. In the study area, 75 genera, 91 species and subspecies belonging to 32 families were determined. The Asteraceae (Compositae)family was found to have the largest number of taxa in the study area. Phytogeographical distribution of plants shows that the most commonly found element was Irano-Turanian (4.3%). It was found that 39% of the described taxa were distributed in wheat fields, 25 % in beet fields, 14 % in clover fields and 12 % of them in other agricultural fields.
