Monday, May 2, 2022. 3:00 PM. Webinar: Forage and Economics of African Wiregrass (Ventenata dubia) Control in Northeastern Wyoming with Drought Considerations. Marshall Hart, University of Wyoming. Sponsored by USDA NRCS. Register here.

Join us as we discuss the impacts that African wiregrass can have in northern mixed-prairie, the implications of drought for this species, and the economic costs associated with its removal.

The presentation will include information on the forage impacts of African wiregrass in northern mixed-prairie, and how these impacts change during wet and dry years, the efficacy of indaziflam treatments and the impacts that this herbicide can have on biodiversity, and the economic cost of this species for a ranch by comparing the partial budgets of two mitigation options: purchasing additional hay to replace lost forage, or applying indaziflam to control this species.
