Efforts in Controlling Invasive Species

NIFA is an active partner of the federal Invasive Species Council and contributed to the Invasive Species Management Plan, which includes an action plan for control and management of invasive species. A part of this plan recommends that the USDA accelerate the development, testing, assessment, transfer, and post-release monitoring of environmentally safe biological control agents.

The control and management working group is co-chaired by Robert Nowierski, NIFA national program leader for bio-based pest management.
