War on Weeds - A Progress Report


Author(s):
Abstract:
Alligator weed is an exotic plant that is getting a chokehold on the state's waterways. On July 3, 1958, Congress passed a law that “authorized a comprehensive project to provide for the control and progressive eradication of the water hyacinth, alligator weed, and other obnoxious aquatic plant growths.” In 1960, North Carolina began a project to combat these plants. Johnson summarizes the project objectives, control operations performed, and results observed to date in the state.
