The Prairie County Weed District provides landowners with assistance in controlling noxious weeds on rangeland. The long term goal of the Prairie County Weed District is to achieve a level of noxious weed control where threats of noxious weeds and their spread are diminished, and a level at which all individual landowners control their weeds on an individual basis.
Weed Board Members:
The Prairie County Weed Board offers a cost share of up to $500 per individual for those producers who are actively involved in controlling priority noxious weeds on their rangeland. Weeds eligible for cost-share control are: leafy spurge, Russian knapweed, spotted knapweed, diffuse knapweed, Canada thistle, whitetop, St. Johnswort, dyers woad, common crupina, sulfur cinquefoil, yellow starthistle, Dalmatian toadflax, and rush skeletonweed.
If a producer hires the county weed crew to spray noxious weeds, the Weed Board will share 35% of the total spray bill.
For those producers who do their own noxious weed spraying, the cost-share is 60% of the chemical cost. The producer must keep the chemical receipt and fill out a ‘Request for Cost Share’ form available from the Prairie County Extension Office.
