    It is time for Montana’s ten-year Legislative Re-districting process, meaning that Montana will soon create new boundaries for state Legislative Districts.  The lines are redrawn every 10 years following the U.S. Census because Federal Law stipulates that districts must have nearly equal population.  Drawing the new state legislative district boundaries is done by a Commission comprised of five members, including two Democrats and two Republicans.  This cycle one of those Republican members is Jeff Essmann, who joins us to discuss the process.

    Integrated Weed Management (IWM) is an way to manage weeds utilizing multiple control tactics. According to IntegratedWeedManagement.org, “Herbicide application is the main weed control strategy used. Reliance on this one method has led to the development of herbicide-resistant weeds. There are a limited number of herbicides available to use and cases of herbicide resistance are rapidly increasing in the US. As a result, herbicides are in need of extra help to continue to ensure adequate weed control.”

    Learn more as we take your calls and discuss weed control with Megan Hoyer, Yellowstone County Weed District and Gary Adams, USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service
