During the Summer of 2007, Professor Mike McInnis of Oregon State University’s Agriculture Program at Eastern Oregon University had several of his Rangeland Ecology & Management students write informational papers on noxious weeds. A few of the articles were published in our local newspaper, The Observer. Below are the links to said articles, which contain a great deal of information and detail on weeds of particular importance in Union County.
