A Framework of Priority Information Needs:Interviews with Key Informants

The research project entitled Assisting Landowners/managers with Establishing,
Implementing and Sustaining Integrated Pest Management Plans (IPM) for Leafy Spurge
provided the LSSG with an opportunity to speak with key people from non-government
agencies, provincial and federal government departments, municipalities, industry and other
organizations to gain their perceptions of the current state of the leafy spurge infestation,
effectiveness of existing leafy spurge programs, information and resources, as well as current
control methods. The results from these interviews are reported in this document, and it is
anticipated they will help guide the LSSG’s future programming and communications efforts.
