Antonio DiTommaso Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, 903 Bradfield Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853; ad97@cornell.edu Common ragweed is a native annual that colonizes disturbed habitats including agricultural fields and roadsides. It is especially abundant along roadways receiving regular applications of deicing salt. Anecdotal evidence has suggested that the emergence of common ragweed seedlings often occurs before the emergence of other roadside species and at salinity… CONTINUE READING
