Contain and/or reduce noxious weed infestations on BLM administered land using an integrated pest management approach. Some noxious weeds expected to be subject to control are:
Avoid introducing or spreading noxious weed infestations in any areas.
Land Use Allocations
No allocations are made for noxious weeds in the planning process.
Implement an integrated noxious weed control program. Develop a Prevention Plan and identification of Weed Free Areas. Site-specific plans will be prepared for 5-year periods. Control methods or combinations of methods proposed are dependent upon size, location, species, and type of weed infestation.
Evaluate impacts of nonnative plants (weeds) growing in all land use allocations.
Develop plans and recommendations for eliminating or controlling nonnative 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.
Continue to survey BLM administered land for noxious weed infestations, report infestations to the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and work with ODA to reduce infestations.
Use control methods that do not retard or prevent attainment of Aquatic Conservation Strategy objectives.
Apply integrated pest management methods (chemical, mechanical, manual and/or biological) in accordance with BLM's multistate Environmental Impact Statement, Northwest Area Noxious Weed Control Program, 1985, as supplemented in 1987, and the related ROD.
