Going Green: Dangerous Plants

Description

Wild parsnip is found all over New York along roadsides and fallow farm field. Coming in contact can produce a blistering rash that's phytophototoxic, which means it reacts to sunlight so the rash can recur for many years. It is best removed by a properly applied herbicide. Anyone going near the plant should wear long sleeves, long pants, gloves and some form of face cover.
