Final Round ISRP Date: None
Final Round ISRP Rating: Does Not Meet Scientific Review Criteria
Final Round ISRP Comment:
This new proposal calls for the aerial herbicide treatment of 1500 acres on private land. This treatment could remove all the broadleaf plants on these acres. The proposal doesn't establish that this is valuable range, or that the broadleaf plants need to be controlled. There is no quantitative description of the weeds and monitoring is not adequately described. Thus, there is no apparent way to assess the value of the project. There is no description of Integrated Pest Management. The project proposed does not seem to be the best management practice.
