Document Description
Sahara mustard (Brassica toumeforii) is an exotic annual mustard that has recently expanded throughout southwestern US deserts. Field experiments to test the efficacy of different control regimes for Sahara mustard in field settings are needed. Because of the vast amounts of land already invaded by Sahara mustard, herbicide is perhaps the best option for large-scale effective control in desert ecosystems.
