Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) invasion threatens sandy landscapes in the Kiskunság. In an experiment milkweed was treated by herbicide and the experimental plots were seeded with target grassland species. Control experiments have also been installed at milkweed dominated areas. The nursing effect of milkweed was discovered in the early phase of plant development for Festuca vaginata, the dominant species of the target community.
