USDA AFFIRMS INTERIM RULE AS FINAL RULE FOR TWO NOXIOUS WEEDS: OLD WORLD CLIMBING FERN AND MAIDENHAIR CREEPER

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is adopting as a final rule, without change, an interim rule that amended the noxious weed regulations by adding Old World climbing fern (Lygodium microphyllum (Cavanilles) R. Brown) and maidenhair creeper (Lygodium flexuosum (Linnaeus) Swartz) to the list of terrestrial noxious weeds.  This action is necessary to prevent the artificial spread of these noxious weeds within and into the United States.

This action is published in today’s May 3 Federal Register and was effective Oct. 19, 2009.
