Document Description
CDFW is issuing a permit to the San Francisco Estuary Invasive Spartina Project pursuant to Fish and Game Code section 2081(a) for a project to treat an exotic invasive weed, Spartina patens, to facilitate management and recovery of Chloropyron molle subsp. molle. Project activities include applying herbicides to Spartina patens infestations, and post-treatment monitoring of Chloropyron molle subsp. molle. Herbicide treatment will occur annually for three years beginning in 2016, and will be applied directly to Spartina patens plants during active growth and prior to seed production and dispersal. Chloropyron molle subsp. molle will be monitored annually following herbicide treatment, and monitoring will continue for five years after the final herbicide treatment is applied.
