Specifically, Liberty Township has a copious amount of Johnson Grass which is a noxious weed that is very aggressive and will take over farm fields, yards, etc. in a very short time if not controlled.  2018 publication from the Ohio Department of Agriculture that provides more information on noxious weeds.  Page 10 is specific to Johnson Grass. Refer to book on noxious weeds.
