I was out pulling yesterday with some landowners, and noticed that gm already has seed pods (a bit early due to a lot of rain?). In the past I have stopped pulling as I saw the pods develop, but learned last year from my partner, that we could have gone on longer, until the pods were brown and dry. I just wonder when to stop. The pods are green, turning brown, but not dry so not breaking open to drop seeds yet.
However, there are some folks up here who would like to earn some money pulling and at this point, I am concerned about letting them start as I believe it might be too close to seed drop.
We would like to give this matter careful treatment in the film. Can anyone give a fairly definitive answer to when it is time to get out of the infestation so as not to inadvertently spread it?
