Sulphur cinquefoil can pose a serious management problem in natural areas due to its high seed production. It is not very palatable to grazing by animals and will reduce native grass production in grasslands and reduce carrying capacity for domestic livestock and wildlife. It will also reduce the quality of hay in infested hay meadows.
It will decrease native plant diversity and alter the natural successional processes in native plant communities in which it becomes established.
Source? likely to be reintroduced:
Will compete with native grasses, reducing productions. Will reduce the quality of hay in infested meadows. Non-palatable to grazing animals. A single plant can annually produce thousands of wind-dispersed seeds.
