Contain and/or reduce noxious weed infestations on BLM-administered land using an integrated pest management approach and avoid introducing or spreading noxious weed infestations in any areas. Some noxious weeds expected to be subject to control are:
Land Use Allocations
No allocations are made for noxious weeds in the planning process.
Management Actions/Direction - Late-Successional Reserves
Evaluate impacts of non-native plants (weeds) growing in Late-Successional Reserves.
Develop plans and recommendations for eliminating or controlling non-native plants (weeds) that adversely affect Late-Successional Reserve objectives. Include an analysis of effects of implementing such programs on other species or habitats within reserves.
Management Actions/Direction - All Land Use Allocations
Continue to survey BLM-administered land for noxious weed infestations, report infestations to the Oregon Department of Agriculture, and coordinate with them to reduce infestations.
Use control methods that do not retard or prevent attainment of Aquatic Conservation Strategy Objectives.
Apply integrated pest management methods (e.g., chemical, mechanical, manual, and/or biological) in accordance with BLM's multi-state environmental impact statement, Northwest Area Noxious Weed Control Program, as supplemented, and the related ROD.
