Cdn Food Inspection Agency Looking to Confirm Prescence of Woolly Cup Grass

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is looking to confirm the presence or absence of Woolly Cup Grass (Erichloa villosa) in B.C. It is native to Asia and was introduced to the U.S. in the 1950s, but to date has been confined to four small sites in Quebec. It is normally found in agricultural areas, in cultivated fields, pastures and disturbed areas along fences, ditches and roadsides. For more information, download this pamphlet, or visit the CFIA website. Comments on the prescence/absence can be reported to Jamie Richardson, via phone (604-541-5955) or email (Jamie.Richardson@inspection.gc.ca)
