Weeding Out The Stinknet — Why It's Good To Pull Them Out

And now for something a little different: Let’s talk about weeds.

In particular, about one weed with a particularly funny name: stinknet.

The name isn’t so much about the smell as it is about encouraging people to pull it out.

In January, it was classified as a noxious weed by the Arizona Department of Agriculture — and that’s because it’s everywhere. And it’s not good for our environment.

The Show sat down with Annia Quiroz with the Central Arizona Conservation Alliance more about it.
