Click on links below for details on each type of experiment conducted by the Kudzu Coalition, many of which were carried out at our test site. Successful methods are used to treat sites with kudzu infestations. Results from these experiments, and site work, form the basis for the Coalition's kudzu containment and removal protocol. A summary of what small property owners can do to remove or control kudzu is based on the full protocol.
Also see our Kudzu Kalendar, which summarizes the stages of life of kudzu in our part of South Carolina. The calendar is sometimes the basis for deciding when, and for how long, an experiment should be carried out during the year. Some experiments continue for years before it is known whether it suggests a new treatment that is useful against kudzu. One way to measure the effectiveness of a kudzu treatment is to count the number of kudzu crowns that survive. The Coalition uses milli-acre sampling.
