Research Project: DEMONSTRATION/ASSESSMENT OF ECOLOGICALLY BASED IPM OF MEDUSAHEAD/CHEATGRASS IN JORDAN VALLEY Project Number: 0500-00044-025-03
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 10, 2008
End Date: Sep 30, 2012

Objective:
The overall objective is to develop and implement a comprehensive, regional Ecologically-Based Invasive Plant Management (EBIPM) program to restore ecosystems threatened and dominated by cheatgrass/medusahead in Jordan Valley and the Great Basin.

Approach:
Oregon State University (OSU) and USDA, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists will cooperate on a project to demonstrate and assess the potential of using a one-pass system, prescribed grazing, and plateau application strategies (refer to project proposal for more detailed information) to rehabilitate annual-grass infested rangelands across heterogeneous landscapes in Jordan Valley, OR and the Great Basin. Documents SCA with OSU.
