Woolly Cupgrass?

All,

I just got done writing a story on weeds where I referred to woolly cupgrass. This was a big weed, particularly in Minnesota in the early 1990s, but I just hardly hear boo about it now. Have you ever encountered it on your farms? 

Thanks,

Gil, that weed went away as soon as Roundup tolerant crops  came on.  🙂

Re: Woolly Cupgrass?

I never thought of that, but that does make sense, doesn't it? Because the mid 90s to late 90s was about the time it seemed to go off the weed radar, right when the RR technology got going full-bore.
