Idaho Cooperative Weed Management Area

A Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) is a distinguishable hydrologic, vegetative, or geographic zone based upon geography, weed infestations, climatic or human-use patterns.  A CWMA may be composed of a portion of a county, a county, portions of several counties, or portions of more than one state. CWMAs are formed when the landowners and land managers of a given area come together and agree to work cooperatively to control weeds.

For a CWMA to be recognized by the Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) and participate in the ISDA Cost Share Program, an Annual Operating Plan (AOP) and Integrated Weed Management Plan (IWMP) must be developed and submitted. Not all CWMAs participate in the ISDA Cost Share Program. County Weed Superintendents are often heavily involved in CWMAs and local activities.

For more information on CWMAs in your area, please contact the appropriate County Weed Superintendent.
