Bad plants, also known as weeds or invasive plants, cause harm
by competing with crop plants and native plants. MDA programs
focus on early detection of new terrestrial weeds before they become
established, because this is when eradication or containment efforts
are most likely to succeed. In addition, MDA uses an integrated
approach to manage established weeds. These efforts will help
to limit the negative impacts of invasive weeds on our natural environment.
