Tom Foley. Foley, a member of the House AGriculture committee, sa,id the skeleton weed pro- gram is unique. "In the past individual farmers have par- ticipated in Agricultural Con- se,rvation Program e,fforts on individuaI f,rms. Tls ,is a broader effort, involving a number ,of farmers working to- gether with local organizations and the state and federal ffov- ernmen to meeting a major problem," said Poley.

The state Department of Agriculture has made an equal allocation. any frmers are si.gmn,g a "poolng" agreement, in whiCh they agree to palietpate un-I der the ACP pogram in erad-' icating the weed. Spokane county commission- ers have agreed to carry out the weed spvayizg proWram, for the state, using county equipment, on a reimbursaMe bans. Others involved in develop- ing lhe program include the Agrivultural Stabilization and Conservation Committees, Soil Conservation Service techni- ci,ans ,and farmer supervisors, the extcm,sion service, Farmvms tIome Administraion, local weed conmfittees ,and others. Most of the skeleton weed stands first occurrred in the Four Lakes area. The weed has spread into many cher parts of the county, to the Lincoln county line, and into Kootenai county, Idaho. "The state and federal ov- enment it'et he i in seeiug to it that this weed doe: not spread fuvthex and endan- ger farm land m other ,areas," said FOley. Skleto weed grows to a hei#t of about four feet and has a skeletal ,stalk body, with leaves near the ground. It ha a yIIw flver mad spreads tb_v0h both reot and seed , growth.
