Common Ragweed is like the Kardashian family, it just won’t go away. Not only is it an obnoxious fixture throughout the United States, it is also the primary cause of hay fever. To exacerbate the problem, this ornery weed is an indicator species, which mean it’s bringing more squatters with it. Worse yet, it exhibits glyhposate resistance. Nothing worse than a squatter you can’t get rid of!

Fret not, there are ways to deal with this vigilent vagrant. Through planning, preperation, and a little research this plant will wish it had never set roots in your field.
