Our state has a number of troublesome weed grasses, worst of which at the present time is, likely, the Squirrel-tail Grass (Hordeum jubatum L.) which is now to be found almost everywhere within the state and is very annoying in crowding out better grasses and in injuring livestock. Only a few decades ago is was scarce within our borders. While theoretically it is easily controlled and though it is hated by farmers everywhere it thrives and extends its area every year. If the loss due to it could be computed it would doubtless prove to be heavy.
