The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) is proposing to fund aerial application of herbicide and soil inoculant to control cheatgrass on a 139-acre hillside in north-eastern Nevada.
BPA is proposing to fund the Shoshone Paiute Indian Tribe to aerially apply herbicide (Plateau) and soil inoculant (MB906) to control cheatgrass on a 139-acre hillside south of Mountain City, Nevada that has become dominated by this invasive species following the 2012 Brown’s Gulch fire. The cheatgrass is hindering this area’s post-fire recovery to its native sagebrush-steppe plant community. The treatment would begin in the spring of 2019 and may be repeated in the fall or spring for up to three years.
