Ventenata Management Field Days in ID and WA

7/18 Field Day with Washington State University and University of Idaho

7/19 Field Day with Washington State University Extension

Come and learn about the latest research for restoring ventenata-infested natural areas and
rangeland. The field day will cover ventenata control trials established since the spring of 2016. You will see the effects of both new and established herbicide options. After attending this tour you will have a better understanding of herbicides, tank mix options, and application timings for ventenata control. You will also see the effects ventenata has on perennial grasses and the rapid response of the perennial grasses and forbs to removal of ventenata competition.

2016 Resilience and Resistance Field Workshop Reports

2016 Resilience and Resistance Field Workshop Reports

Rick Miller, Professor Emeritus of Range and Fire Ecology, and local hosts will discuss tools to rapidly assess resilience to disturbance (ability of a treatment area to recover), resistance to invasive annuals, predict successional pathways, and determine the need and suitability for seeding  on potential vegetation treatment areas and areas burned by wildfire.
