Soil disturbances from Hurricane Michael will encourage weed growth

IFAS posted a story last week which discussed the increase in weeds that are likely coming to pastures this years. The wet conditions may encourage some weeds, and the increase in sunlight due to the large number of downed trees will stimulate the growth of many more. You can read more about the problems that livestock producers can expect at http://nwdistrict.ifas.ufl.edu/phag/2019/03/29/pasture-weeds-are-coming-be-ready/.
