"Featuring Joe Neal"
Sophia McCusker, Nursery Technician

Weedy field and a classic VW

Everybody hates weeds, especially Sophia, our Nursery Technician, who would not be upset one little bit were she to live the rest of her life never seeing another plant-out-of-place. Well, everyone hates weeds except weed scientists; and it's a good thing too, because study into these unwanted plants gives us the ability to recognize and manage their populations before they get too out of control. Join us for our Garden Conversations where we'll sit down with Joe Neal, Professor of Weed Science and Extension Specialist at NC State University, to talk all about weeds and how to know which ones to look out for and how to keep them all in check.
