Invasive species threaten many foudational aspects of agricultural production, ecological health and our native environments. The threat grows exponentially as species establish and spread into our lands and waters. Our rate of new species introduction is also increasing and climate change seems poised to add another layer of complexity. Current budgets for natural resource agencies to research and manage these species are thin at best. I am curious how the USDA will prioritize and integrate invasive species prevention, management and restoration under your leadership?
