August 2, 2012

An invasive plant species is keeping area ranchers and the Barnes County Weed Control Board on its toes.

Weed Control Director Jim McAllister said Spotted Knapweed has been in the area for about eight years, but now it is threatening a widespread infestation.

“We consider there’s probably 225 acres infested, and the bad part about it is it makes pasture virtually worthless,” he said. “The Knapweed is an annual or a short-lived biennial, but it still has the ability to choke out anything that’s growing.”
