Question of the Week – Azolla or Mosquito Fern

Posted by romeethredge on March 14, 2014

Last week I had a pond weed called Azolla or Mosquito fern that bothered a duck pond recently. It can fill up a pond pretty quickly and it will be green and then turn a rusty red color. Here’s a link to the Univ of Florida article concerning this aquatic weed.




This week’s question is about an area around the pivot of this small grains field that looks strange. The grower asked me to look at the rye in this field and when I approached the pivot it looked like it had been disked. What do you think happened here and why?
