International Ragweed Day – June 24, 2017

What are ragweeds? Why worry? What do we know? What you can do?

Please find all the answers to these questions in this leaflet prepared by the International Ragweed Society (in collaboration with L’Observatoire des ambroisies) for the 2017 International Ragweed Day.

 

Below, an identification tool (funded by the EU-COST-Action FA-1203) about Ambrosia in Europe (habitus, leaves, seed). You can get the pdf file (English version and Italian version).

Announcing the International Ragweed Day – June 24, 2017

Based on the proposition of allergologist Prof. Dr. Kristof Nekam and Dr. Tamas Komives the General Assembly of IRS (held in Ascona, Switzerland on October 6, 2011) proclaimed the first Saturday of the summer The International Ragweed Day (IRD) to increase understanding and awareness of the problem this invasive weed causes all over the world. The day was chosen because it is early in the growing season of the plant thereby gives enough time for preparations and actions.

We are inviting our members to take part in the organizing work.
