Animal Grazing Control of Japanese Knotweed

Farmers and land owners will be pleased to learn that animal grazing can be used as a control method for Japanese Knotweed. Continual grazing will prevent the knotweed from spreading and becoming a nuisance. It is not a method of total eradication

Using Japanese Knotweed as animal fodder is common practice in Asia. Cows, donkeys, horses, sheep and goats will happily graze on Knotweed. It can also be used for human consumption and there are even recipes for it's use as food and even as medicine.
