Size and Location
All landowners and land managers with priority weed species are required to implement the following minimal management strategies.
(a) Isolated small populations of one acre or less: Intensive best
management practices applied with eradication goals in mind.
Prevent seed formation and root spread on an annual basis.
(b) Satellite populations (one acre or less) proximate to larger populations: Intensive best management practices applied with eradication, containment, and reduction goals in mind. Prevent seed formation and root spread on an annual basis.
(c) Large populations of more than one acre: Use of effective, best management practices. Apply containment and perimeter buffering management practices at a minimum of fifty feet wide each growing season. Prevent seed formation and root spread on an annual basis.
Additionally, containment and perimeter buffering/reduction practices shall be stepped inward toward the center of the infestation at a minimum of fifty feet wide each season thereafter until the desired goals of the weed management plan have been met.
Priority Management Areas Consists of:
(a) Infestations adjacent to property lines, easements, rights of ways, ditches, canals, streams, rivers, creeks, trails, wildlife migration routes, private and public roadways. Buffering will be required each growing season and applied to the entire perimeter of the infestation at a minimum of fifty feet wide at the proper timing in order to prevent seed formation and root spread. Annual stepped in buffering and reduction management is required.
