2024-04-11T13:00:00Z 2024-04-11T14:00:00Z Untangling the Knot: Identifying Effective Detection and Treatment Regimes for Invasive Knotweeds

Invasive knotweeds are a growing problem throughout Michigan. In the Upper Peninsula, a collaborative effort is underway to find the best methods for detecting and managing these aggressive plants. Dorthea Vander Bilt of Michigan Tech Research Institute, Michigan Technological University, Sigrid Resh of the Keweenaw Invasive Species Management Area and MTU, and Matt Watkeys of Alger Conservation District will share the results of their recent research. The team studied various chemical, manual and integrated control methods on Japanese, Bohemian and giant knotweed species and employed remote sensing to detect and prioritize knotweed populations across the landscape.

After registering, you will receive an email from "EGLE Outreach" with a link for you to use to join the webinar.

Individuals needing language assistance or accommodations for effective participation should contact Joel Roseberry, roseberryj@michigan.gov by March 28 to request language, mobility, visual, hearing, translation, and/or other assistance.
