DescriptionKochia “summer cypress” Kochia scoparia (L.) also known as fireweed, burning bush, was introduced to the United States around 1900 as an ornamental from Eurasia. Because of kochia’s low water requirements and resistance to diseases and insects, interest in it as a forage crop has increased in the last decade. Can be used in revegetation programs for erosion control. Germinate and grow at any time in the growing season, and it thrives in sandy, alkaline and other poor soils that’s why it can be sown by airplane on large areas that need revegetation, such as areas that have been devastated by fire and provides a quick groundcover to protect topsoil and provide a food source for wildlife until native grasses take over.
