New factsheet explores weed seeds and their longevity

A new factsheet from the Weed Science Society of America is now available for free download, exploring research of weed seed longevity. It highlights the unique ways weed seeds can travel (earthworms can collect and move them into their burrows), their viability (moth mullein seeds buried in 1879 were able to germinate more than 130 years later), ways they can be eliminated (carabid beetles can consume large quantities of weed seeds that drop to the soil) and more. Download the factsheet here and visit www.wssa.net for more information.
