Technical Abstract: Leafy Spurge (Euphorbia esula) is an exotic noxious weed that infest five million acres of land in 29 states. It causes significant problems in the northern Great Plains by invading grazing lands for cattle and horses, reducing rangeland productivity and plant diversity, degrading wildlife habitat and wildlife associated recreation, and drastically reducing land values. Infestations in Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas alone are estimated to cost agricultural producers and taxpayers in excess of $144 million a year in production losses, control expenses and other impacts to the economy.
