Researchers make progress in battle against phragmites

University of Delaware researchers have uncovered a novel means of conquest employed by a common reed, Phragmites australis, which ranks as one of the world’s most invasive plants.

Phragmites is a problem in Nebraska rivers and streams, such as the Platte.

Last October, Platte Valley Weed Management Area (PVWMA) crews were busy spraying in Hall County along the Platte River areas designated for weed extermination.

The PVWMA is a group of public and private agencies and individuals who are concerned with stopping the spread of noxious and invasive plants in the Central Platte River drainage area.
