CommentsThis observation marks the first detection in Latah County. The stand is small (100 m2) with minimal old thatch so likely less than a 3-year old infestation. Seed heads were clipped and removed within a week of discovery. The County's Weed Superintendent has designated the patch for EDRR work in 2021, so hopefully it will soon become eradicated.
