An aggressive perennial grass, Quackgrass reproduces by seeds and spreads by mass of shallow branching rhizomes. It is only fair forage for livestock, but rapidly spreads and takes over an area. It is a nuisance in lawns and home gardens.
Quackgrass is found throughout Nebraska, but it is most common in the northern and eastern portions of the state. There have been no reported infestations in Kansas since before 1986.
