Highlighting the need for invasive species management approaches that maximize cost effectiveness of reduced-risk practices while promoting biodiversity.

GOALS

  • Educate rangeland managers and practitioners on public and private lands about approaches that maximize cost effectiveness of reduced-risk practices while conserving diversity and promoting productivity.
     
  • Increase knowledge transfer of recent developments in the field of IPM research and field application to land managers and practitioners. 
      
  • Understand how practitioners make decisions about designing and implementing approaches within each IPM category.  
      
  • Identify factors that contribute to success or failure of IPM and to identify how to minimize pesticide use in IPM on rangeland systems. 
      
  • Create a best practices manual for IPM practitioners based information from survey and interviews.     
      
  • Integrate lessons learned from this project into current and future research across the UC system.
