What is the Weed of The Week?

Each week Richard Purdin, Ag & Natural Resources Educator, will provide information and images of a weed that can cause problems in crop fields. The goal is to let producers know what the weed looks like and give options on how to control the weed and reduce the spread from one farm to another.
