noxious weeds, biocontrol, south dakota
Biocontrol offers another tool for noxious weed control. There are potential economic benefits, as well as advantages where environmental situations or site restrictions limit or preclude other control options. Biocontrol approaches usually require at least 3 to 5 years for significant results. Ultimately, the greatest benefit will be realized if biocontrol is integrated with other control measures.
