From herbicide resistant pigweed to Asiatic soybean rust, boll weevils to kudzu, invasive species are a prevalent and persistent problem in Georgia. Fighting these unwanted interlopers costs farmers, local governments, and the state millions each year. UGA Extension and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences are working to combat this problem from all angles.
