  Estimated read time:

Western ragweed (Ambrosia psilostachya) is considered one of the most common weeds in pastures and rangeland in the Southern Great Plains. It is an aggressive competitor with grasses and is generally considered unpalatable to cattle (Vermeire et al., 2013). It is found in abundance in at least 30 states, Canada and Mexico (Pavek, 1992).
