Re: Cluster of Severe EMS Cases - long shot Johnson Grass
Dr Kellon, at least two grasses being sold a orchard grass in northern California are NOT orchard grass. One in particular looks very attractive because it’s very leafy and persistently green hay. I received several bale in the past few years, and the nitrate levels were off the charts, 7700 ppm nitrate ion, 5100 ppm nitrate ion. I haven't tested for cyanide but would be willing to if I can find a lab to do it.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I suspect some kind of Johnson Grass (an invasive plant in California). The hay I received with off the charts nitrates levels had these seed heads, remains very green even though 2 years old. I’m attaching a photo.
