      Cogongrass Biology and Management in the Southeastern U.S. Cogongrass [Imperata cylindrica (L.) Beauv.] is one of the world’s most invasive plants. Native to the tropical and subtropical regions of southeastern Asia, this invasive grass is an aggressive pest in over 73 countries. Cogongrass is present. Sika deer, the graceful spotted deer of Japanese and Chinese art, originally were native to Asia from far-east Russia to Vietnam to the islands of Japan and Taiwan. They are widely raised in captivity to supply velvet antler for traditional medicine. They also were introduced to Europe, North.

      What is Cogongrass? Cogongrass (Imperata cylindrica (L.) Beauv.), is a very aggressive exotic perennial grass that entered Alabama in in packing material from Japan. It is on the Federal list of noxious weeds and is designated as the world’s seventh worst weed. Cogongrass is spreading rapidly across Alabama and the southeast, reducing forest.   James Porter is Professor of Ecology and Marine Sciences at the Institute of Ecology at the University of Georgia. Cheryl Woodley is the Chair of the Coral Disease and Health Consortium for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

      Description This book explores the most important aspects of the biology, ecology and management of what is one of the world's worst weeds. Originally regarded as a major weed in Australia and India, Parthenium weed is now widespread in around 48 countries in Africa, Asia and the South Pacific, and has the potential to spread to new countries in Africa, Asia and Europe.

Top growth of cogongrass is easy to kill or eliminate, while it is the underground stems or rhizomes that are more difficult to control and must be the target of eradication-control treatments.

Each sharp rhizome tip can initiate a shoot and new rhizomes when top growth is eliminated by mowing, herbicide, or burning. BIOLOGY, ECOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT OF COGONGRASS [Imperata cylindrica (L.) Beauv.] By Tommy Ray Willard December, Chairman: Dr.

This book is centered on the "production processes" of crops and pastures, photosynthesis, and use of water and nutrients in fields.

It is unique in its combination of great breadth and depth in its treatment of production processes and systems problems. The approach is explanatory and integrative, with a firm basis in environmental physics, soils, physiology, and morphology, in contrast to.Willard, T.R.
