Thistle

Weed control is essential for production of quality forage. Here, thistle (Cirsium sp.) was able to compete against Sericea lespedeza after a late spring freeze killed the lespedeza (Sericea lespedeza) back to the roots. AFSRC scientists are studying ways to better manage forage species in the difficult conditions of central Appalachia.
