Weed Science Society of America Issues Strong Appeal to USDA for Restoration of Funding for Weed Science

The Weed Science Society of America (WSSA) has announced it is protesting the elimination of virtually all funding for weed science from the federal budget.  According to the societies, if the budget moves forward as proposed, critical work impacting food and water supplies and our natural ecosystems will remain unfunded.  Joining WSSA in an appeal to USDA to restore the funding were the Aquatic Plant Management Society, North Central Weed Science Society, Northeastern Weed Science Society, Southern Weed Science Society and Western Society of Weed Science.
