Summary: The BLM proposes to apply the herbicide imazapic by aerial and ground-based methods to populations of the noxious weed Medusa head rye (Taeniatherum caputmedusae), and the invasive non-native weeds cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum), and North Africa grass (Ventenata dubia (Leers.) Coss) on BLM administered lands affected by the Brown Road, Razorback, and Hancock Complex fires. Ground based and aerial methods would be used for pre-emergent applications of imazapic, at a rate of O.OG2S-0.0937S pounds of active ingredient (a.i.) per acre per year, equivalent to 4-G ounces of Plateau, Panoramic 2SL, or Nufarm lmazapic 2SL. Treatments would occur on no more than 1S,719 acres annually, with exact annual acreages to be determined based upon effectiveness monitoring and prioritization of treatments based upon early detection rapid response (EDRR) to emerging noxious and non-native weed populations.
