    Video is very well done and instructive. I did not learn much new because I’ve been dealing with phrag on the job for years, but would be an excellent introduction for people who know little about the plant. Should be shown in schools etc., and at fraternal organization meetings.

  2. Stephen Klaber Says:

    Researchers at the U. of Manitoba have been developing techniques for harvesting and exploiting this plant. It will be necessary to do so, as the plant is feloniously renewable. Like the water hyacinth in Lake Victoria, and the cattails in Lake Chad, your weeds are here for the long haul, and the effort to fight them must be too. That requires a profit.
