Barnyardgrass // Mizzou WeedID

An annual that can reach up to 5 feet tall, this summer perennial is thick with stems. One of the few grass weeds in which ligules are absent. Found throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico as a weed of many agronomic crops, nurseries, landscape, and turf. The seeds are free from hairs, auricles and ligules and are usually tinted at the base with red or maroon. The shoot is rolled in and smooth without any ligules. The length of the leaves can vary from 4-20 inches and they may measure 5-30mm in width. The midvein of leaves is distinct and white. It becomes keeled towards the base potions. There may be a few hairs at the base of leaves. They are usually thick and erect. The terminal panicle is the seedhead. It can be anywhere from 4-16 inches long. The panicles can be purple or green in color. They are composed of spikelets which may form a terminal awn that is 2-10 mm in length (picture to right). A fibrous root system. Because of their similarities in growth habits and appearance, Fall Panicum and Barnyardgrass can often be confused before seedhead formation. However, the characteristic absent ligule of barnyardgrass helps to distinguish this weed from most other grasses in both the seedling and mature stage of growth.

Bong then added actor to his list of many talents with a small part as a teacher in socially-awkward comedy “Crush and Blush” (2008) and joined Michel Gondry and Leos Carax as director in the “Tokyo!” (2008) tritych with “Shaking Tokyo”, the touching story about a lonely woman who falls for a delivery girl. Bong’s next full-length effort, “Mother” (2009), a gripping forensic-procedural drama based on a doting mother’s struggle to prove her murder suspect son’s innocence, was in a different style from its predecessors but still attracted Korean audiences in droves. Following a cameo in sci-fi anthology “Doomsday Book” (2012), Bong embraced English-language cinema for the first time with the post-apocalyptic fantasy “Snowpiercer” (2013), an adaptation of French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, for which he garnered near universal acclaim for his typically boundary-pushing style.

Tokyo: 76% is the lowest rated! One of South Korea’s most acclaimed 21st century film-makers, writer, producer and director Bong Joon-ho broke box-office records in his homeland with crime drama “Memories of Murder” (2003) and monster movie “The Host” (2006) before making his mark on English-language cinema with the spectacular sci-fi fantasy “Snowpiercer” (2013). Born in Daegu, South Korea in 1969, Bong grew up in an artistic family where he immersed himself in the films of Edward Yang, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Shohei Imamura and after studying for a sociology degree at Yonsei University, attended a two-year course at the Korean Academy of Film Arts. After graduating, Bong received screenwriting credits on “Seven Reasons Why Beer is Better Than a Lover”, a four-part drama called “Motel Cactus,” and was also an assistant director for the action thriller “Phantom: The Submarine.” (1999). Having previously honed his craft on short films “White Man” (1994), “Memories In My Frame” (1994) and “Ji-ri-myeol-lyeol” (1994), Bong eventually made his feature-length directorial debut with the self-penned “Barking Dogs Never Bite” (2000), a dark comedy about a university lecturer who abducts a neighbor’s pet, which became a slow-burning word-of-mouth success. Adapted from Kim Kwang-rim’s stage play about a real-life elusive serial killer who terrorised a rural town in the 1980s, “Memories of Murder” (2003) saw Bong write and direct the biggest Korean box-office draw of the year, with its success later credited as saving one of its production companies, Sidus Pictures, from bankruptcy. Bong then contributed to the 20-part omnibus film “Twentidentity” (2003) with “Sink and Rise,” a precursor to his next feature-length effort set alongside the Han River, and the “Digital Short Films By Three Directors” (2004) series with “Influenza,” a half-hour tale of a desperate man’s descent into violent crime shot entirely on CCTV. After adding to his list of screenwriting credits with “Antarctic Journal” (2005), a psychological thriller about an expedition to reach the pole of inaccessibility, Bong achieved his international breakthrough with “The Host” (2006), a relatively big-budget blockbuster about a monster which wreaks havoc on a dysfunctional family that also became the highest-grossing film in South Korean history.

It may not be possible to utilize nutrients if you wait 2-3 weeks after the germination of seeds. Once plants are mature and have some foliage, it is worth waiting.
