Oregon Noxious Weeds

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) uses a written risk assessment process to identify and rate weed species that pose the biggest threat to Oregon’s agricultural and natural resources. The risk assessment consists of a series of questions that help evaluate the following:

  • Current geographic distribution
  • Plant biology
  • Resource impacts
  • Difficulty of detection and control

Risk assessments are scored using the best available information, observations, and literature reviews. Risk assessment scores help guide the Oregon State Weed Board in their actions to prioritize ODA program projects and in the weed listing process.​
