IVM Technical Bulletin

This technical bulletin has been prepared for vegetation managers seeking practical information on effective, environmentally-sound methods for managing "noxious weeds" (see Appendix 1).

This bulletin is based on the concept of "integrated vegetation management" or IVM, where noxious weeds can be brought under control or eradicated through an integrated approach. IVM is a decision-making and management process (See IVM Process Flowchart) that uses knowledge from a broad base of expertise, a combination of treatment methods, and a monitoring and evaluation system to achieve vegetation management goals. The objective of the IVM process is to achieve effective, long-term weed prevention and management compatible with both the legal mandate to control noxious weeds and the needs of humans, animals, plants, and environmental resources at and beyond the treatment site.
