The Montana Department of Agriculture has released an updated Montana Noxious Weed List and an updated Weed Brief explaining the priorities and the reason for the changes.
Declaring the Russia Olive a noxious weed has been a hot topic around here lately. The Russian Olive did not make in on the new noxious weed list. However, the Department of Ag is sending out surveys to all County Commissioners in each county. The purpose of the survey is to find out if all counties feel it should be listed.
The MWCA has some more information on noxious weeds.
