Projects will be required to use weed-free straw
« on: July 21, 2011, 04:29:49 am »
SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Idaho is finalizing a
supplementary rule that will require anyone using, feeding, or storing
forage or straw on BLM-administered land in Idaho to use certified
noxious-weed-free forage and straw. Restoration, rehabilitation, and
stabilization projects also will be required to use weed-free straw
bales and mulch for project work.
This action is a cooperative effort
among the BLM, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), and the Idaho State
Department of Agriculture (ISDA) that supports Idaho State noxious weed
laws.
