Agricultural Research Service Research Program: Invasive Species

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS) conducts research in extremely diverse areas involving prevention, control and management of invasive species. For example, ARS provides research in support of action agencies such as the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), to reduce the rate of introduction of invasive species, and to rapidly detect, identify and eradicate incipient species. We also work closely on this issue with States and local governments; with the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) (formerly known as the Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES)), Forest Service (FS), Economic Research Service (ERS), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and others; State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES); with many Department of Interior (USDI) agencies; with the Department of Defense; the private sector; and with international partners. ARS also conducts extensive research on the long-term management of established invasive species, emphasizing biologically based integrated pest management activities.
