Weed Eradication: Program Details
This program maintains a staff of biologists with expertise in regulatory weed eradication and suppression programs directed at noxious weeds of limited distribution. Current significant projects are under way on 28 weed pests. Successful eradication has been attained in several weed species including Whitestem distaff thistle, giant dodder, serrate spurge, blueweed, Austrian peaweed and others. The project also provides general supervision, technical assistance and training in weed control to county agricultural commissioner personnel engaged in regulatory weed control activities.
