    Unlike other kinds of biological controls (insects and fungi), you can't just release goats into the wild. They have to be gathered up after they eat and cared for somewhere. That takes money and people-power that greatly overstrapped parks departments simply don't have.

    The good news is that there's some biofuel potential in kudzu fields. Kudzu takes next to no inputs to grow, so it's much more efficient than corn.

    It's good eating too.
