Working together to strengthen and support noxious weed management efforts in Montana.


Results of Weed Mgmt and Research Needs Survey

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013


The Integrated Weed Management (IWM) committee of the Montana Weed Control Association (MWCA) recently conducted a survey of weed professionals. The survey was part of the IWM’s “Building Bridges” goal of facilitating communication between researchers and managers. We hope the following results bridge on-the-ground weed management needs with current research by: providing direction to research programs in Montana, identifying conference and field tour topics, and updating the Montana Weed Management Plan.

The results summary is available for download.

Thank you to everyone who  participated in the survey.
