1. Whitetop / [i]Lepidium Draba[/i] 
2. Crowds out native species and reduces crop yields; mildly toxic; reduces rangeland health
3. I'm not sure... I'd definitely like to know, though! 
4. (Assuming this is the Whitetop) - Its counterpart (Hairy Whitetop) has more circular/globular shaped seed pods, while the whitetop has heart-shaped pods
5. Digging or grubbing for small populations, use of metsulfuron + chlorsulfuron as chemical, planting competitive legumes in farm fields, various  weevils as biological

On Number 3, I would accept poison hemlock or water hemlock. Sorry if that was a difficult question.

I seem to be bad at following through on these. ><

Anyone can go who has the desire.
