Bio-Control Agriculture

Dakota Life - 06/11/2009

"Bio-Control Agriculture: The Department of Agriculture is participating in a bio-control program that introduces insects to an area to help control different types of weeds. Purple loosestrife roots will be used to raise galerucella (leaf-feeding beetles). The bugs will be raised at the South Dakota Human Services Center. And plans are in the works for natural solutions to leafy spurge and knapweed.
