SC COGONGRASS TASKFORCE

The Cogongrass Task Force began operating in early 2007. The Task Force works closely to support the activities of Clemson University's Department of Plant Industry, who is responsible for the eradication of cogongrass within South Carolina. The Task Force conducts most of its business with conference telephone calls. Groups represented on the Task Force members are listed here.
