Common questions about Asian soybean rust
As a native Midwesterner, I had no idea what kudzu was until I took a fishing trip to Florida while attending college, and until I lived in Georgia for two years. I now know enough about kudzu to feel that we all need to have a greater appreciation of kudzu patches. You cannot easily remove or kill kudzu. Kudzu patches can be very large, in close quarters with the public, or in areas that are inaccessible to spray equipment. They are also very resilient and are not susceptible to herbicides like Roundup. So, kudzu is not like a patch of Canada thistle. You cant simply go out back and hit it with Roundup or another herbicide.
