It's the season for sneezin' if you're sensitive to ragweed.
"One thing about ragweed is that it prefers heavy, moist soils," said Sue Gwise, Jefferson County Cooperative Extension horticulture coordinator.
"So i'm sure that the drought we had this year has really put a hurt on it."
"A lot of it may have died back when it was so dry."
"Most of the pollen counting stations in Rochester and Albany are already showing moderate counts on the ragweed," he said.
