  • Ragweed is a bane to farmers and allergy sufferers alike

    Ragweed is a common problem to both allergy sufferers and to farmers. In late summer some people suffer allergic reactions to ragweeds and other plant pollens. Ragweed also has the potential to severely interfere with crop production and reduce crop yield.

    Individuals who are sensitive to the plant’s pollen are usually very aware of its presence. When plants begin to flower in August and early September, the airborne pollen is the culprit for the severe irritation to sensitive individuals. When exposed to the oil the plant produces, some people even develop a skin rash.
