TEAM Leafy Spurge, a USDA-Agricultural Research Service (ARS) research and demonstration program, focuses on the Little Missouri River and associated watersheds in Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota. Its goal has been to research, develop and demonstrate ecologically based, integrated pest management (IPM) strategies for landowners and land managers to achieve effective, affordable leafy spurge control.


TEAM Leafy Spurge instituted by ARS in 1997 has been conducted cooperatively with the USDA-Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

The information developed under the program is provided here courtesy of the USDA-ARS Northern Plains Agricultural Research Laboratory, Sidney, MT.
