If you’ve ever traveled in the southern part of the United States you’ve no doubt seen the effects of Kudzu. This non-native vine has been slowly invading the US and moving north. When you drive hundreds of miles and see this plant covering everything, you have to wonder if there is a use for his stuff. If it had any real value people would be doing what they can to make a profit!
Discovery News had an interesting article ragarding the use of Kudzu ad an alternative fuel source. Seraches on the Internet also reveal the plant is actually edible (to some extent). As Kudzu continues its spread in the US, it’s my hope that we find a long-term use for, or a way to erradicate, the effects of this plant.
