Pigweeds Are Not Welcome Here!

 Like many other counties in the state, Lawrence County has had its share of problem pigweeds.  As many know these weeds are a costly nuisance.  In dealing with this enemy the old adage "united we stand, divided we fall" holds true in controlling this pest.  It will take a community wide effort with all doing their part.  We must adopt the recommendations as discussed in the recently published fact sheet "Zero Tolerance: A Community-Based Program for Glyphosate Resistant Palmer Amaranth Management"
