The Ecological Areawide Management (TEAM) Leafy Spurge
USDA. ARS. Northern Plains Agricultural Research Laboratory.
The Ecological Area-wide Management (TEAM) Leafy Spurge was a $4.5 million, five-year (1998-2002) USDA-ARS research and demonstration program focusing on the Little Missouri drainage in Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas. Its goal was to research, develop and demonstrate ecologically based Integrated Pest Management strategies that landowners and land managers can use to achieve effective, affordable and sustainable leafy spurge control.
Note: The TEAM Leafy Spurge program was named a recipient of a U. S. Department of Agriculture 2004 Secretary’s Honor Award for exemplary service and achievement.
