Cogongrass is considered a weedy pest in 73 countries. In the U.S., cogongrass is found primarily in the Southeast, where it has become a serious problem. It is currently spreading in nearly every county in Florida. When cogongrass invades it spreads rapidly, displacing desirable plant species and wildlife habitat and disrupting forest and farm management. Cogongrass requires continuous, intensive management to achieve control.

Join in to learn how to quickly identify this weed, the latest information on controlling it, regional partnerships and available assistance in managing this and other invasive exotic species problems.

The seminar will be held at the Walton County Extension office, 732 N. 9th Street, DeFuniak Springs, FL 32433
