Old and New Perennial Weeds with Dr. Brad Hanson

In this short episode, Phoebe Gordon chats with Dr. Brad Hanson, Weed Specialist with UC Davis. They talk about perennial weed management, as well as two species that have recently become problematic in orchard crops: alkaliweed and threespike goosegrass. We don’t know a lot about either, but Brad and other UC weed scientists are actively looking into management.
