Hunters ‘ help sought to stop Cogongrass

Hunters urged not to spread ‘ grass from hell ‘ with food plot plantings
[ Alabama ] Cogongrass, also known as Japgrass or bloodroot, has made its way up from the Gulf Coast and is causing headaches for Clarke County foresters and landowners. Baldwin County Extension Agent Sonya Wood Mahler refers to it as “the grass from hell,” and it is listed as one of Alabama ‘ s 10 most invasive weeds. Experts say the best time of the year to treat the grass is in the fall, just before dormancy. Richburg said NRCS recommends spraying three years. They offer funding of $75 per acre over the three year period for private landowners.
