WA State Weed Board Proposes Changes to 2018 Noxious Weed List
The Washington State Weed Board is considering changes to the 2018 noxious weed list. And this year they included farmers and ranchers in their annual survey to determine the economic impacts of the proposed changes.
This week I talked with Alison Halpern, the Executive Secretary of the Washington State Noxious Weed Control Board.
"This year we're proposing several changes to the Washington State Noxious Weed List. We are considering Small-flowered jewelweed, European coltsfoot, Malta starthistle, The Eurasian watermilfoil hybrid, Spotted jewelweed and Cheatgrass."
The Board will hold a public hearing on proposed weed list changes on October 31st in Wenatchee.
