Grants available to eradicate noxious weeds


The Colorado Department of Agriculture invites county officials, conservation districts, and non-profit organization involved in weed management in Colorado to apply for two grants designed to eradicate noxious weeds. The goal of the grants is to protect Colorado's natural resources by providing noxious weed management opportunities across the state.

The two grants, funded by the Colorado Department of Agriculture's Noxious Weed Fund and the US Forest Service's State and Private Forestry program, will award approximately $400,000 combined for projects focused on List A species and populations of List B species that are subject to eradication.

List A species are weeds that are designated for eradication statewide.

List B species are weeds that have become established in the state and must be contained, suppressed and, where isolated populations exist, eradicated.

For a complete list of List A and B species, visit www.colorado.gov/ag/csd and click on "Noxious Weed Management Program."

"I encourage Colorado producers to contact their county weed managers, conservation districts or Extension offices if they would like to discuss project ideas," said CDA's State Weed Coordinator Steve Ryder. "Funds are limited, but we will make every effort to award high-priority, high-quality projects throughout the state."

Grants awarded in prior years included herbicide purchases, spray equipment and tools, and seasonal field staff.

Application documents are listed at www.colorado.gov/ag and must be delivered to CDA by close of business on March 18.
