Title: Leafy Spurge Patch Expansion
Author: Bangsund, Dean A.; Leitch, Jay A.; Stoh, R.K.
Description: How the weed, leafy spurge, spreads is discussed. A mature plant have roots that go down 15 feet with a food reservoir of stored food to endure hard times. Small root segments are capable of producing new plants. Ground that has been disturbed by the removal of top growth by herbicides or tillage often results in increased leafy spurge densities. This weed can throw seeds up to 15 feet away. Undisturbed land can have the most established leafy spurge stands as it is undisturbed. Cattle avoid it. Sheep and goats will nibble on it. A mathematical formula is applied to the expansion of leafy spurge over the years. Future research was recommended to further define leafy spurge parameters.
