SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, DHS. ACTION: Notice of availability. Background Information The non-native invasive weed species, Carrizo cane, Arundo donax (Poaceae), is prevalent along the southern border of the United States and is an impediment to border security. Among other things, it obscures Border Patrol agents’ lines of sight and provides cover to individuals who are attempting to enter the United States illegally. Accordingly, effective control of Carrizo cane is critical in preventing terrorists and terrorist weapons, drugs, and other contraband from entering the United States and in providing a safer work environment for Border Patrol agents. CBP has evaluated various methods of controlling Carrizo cane, including the application of herbicides and mechanical removal; however, CBP remains interested in evaluating other methods of controlling Carrizo cane. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is advising the public of the availability of a Finding of No ARS Biological Control Research The USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) is conducting research Dated: November 15, 2011.
