Re: [puma-news] Plateau herbicide

Hi Jennifer,

At 4 ounces per acre, I couldn't even come close to using a quart. I suspect
most of us only have small parts of our acreage affected by cheat grass. So
perhaps puma could make the initial investment and then request a minimum
donation (say $20) for its use. Puma would make a little money that could be
used for other projects, and the rest of us would save money. (And the cheat
grass would be gone.) Win win.
