BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota officials say a new edition of a guide to the state's noxious and troublesome weeds is now available.
Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says the pocket-size guide has information and photos to help landowners and managers determine the invasive plants that have grown in their properties and how to stop them from spreading.
The 67-page guide includes information about 31 weeds such as the leafy spurge, Canada thistle and hoary cress. Each entry shows whether the plant is a county- or state-listed noxious weed, how to control it and whether it is poisonous.
The guide is available for free through the state's agriculture department and the North Dakota State University Extension Service. It can also be found online at http://www.bit.ly/NDweeds .
