A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

Action thresholds have been set for identified pests including toad flax and pocket gophers. Toad flax is invasive. Complete eradication of toad flax within campus grounds, including the 305 acres of surrounding wildlands, has been attempted. Toad flax that persists is sprayed with round-up. Pocket gophers are controlled with gas bombs.

Additionally, much weeding is done by hand or mechanical means. Any chemical weeding is done by a licensed applicator who is part of OIT staff.

Plants are perennial.

The website URL where information about the IPM plan(s) is available:

OIT actually owns 305 total acres in Klamath Falls. 210 acres are counted essentially as wild lands, (sage brush, grass and juniper) that surround the main campus. These 210 acres are not actively managed.
