    Here in southern Arizona the musterd has exploded. Your feelings on grazing this weed?

    • Kathy Voth says:

      Mustard is a great forage. Graze it! 🙂

        Does the BLM have picures of some common Arizona weeds for making identifications?

        • Kathy Voth says:

          Good question, Mark. I didn’t find a BLM AZ specific list. But this list from invasive.org shows what is listed as noxious in Arizona. If you click on the name of a plant, you can see a picture of it and get more information: https://www.invasive.org/species/list.cfm?id=31

          Typically I can google for “Noxious Weeds (name of state)” and I’ll find a website for that state’s department of AG that lists the invasive species. Arizona doesn’t seem to have a list like that. Strange!
