Controlling Noxious Weeds

How Noxious Weeds Spread

Noxious weed seed and propagative parts may be disseminated through the movement of machinery and equipment, trucks, grain and seed, straw, nursery stock, fencing materials, sod, manure, and soil as well as articles of similar nature.

Control and Treatment Methods

Effective control of noxious weeds can include any or all of the following methods:

  • Spraying
  • Cultivating
  • Mowing

Methods of treatment have been prescribed by the Director of Agriculture and may be obtained from the County Weed Control Authority by calling (402) 375-3772.

Failure to take action may result in the Wayne County Weed Control Authority taking legal action to effect control.
