Nevada’s post record-breaking winter created a breeding ground for noxious weeds as the summer months approach us. There are over 45 types of noxious weeds in Nevada and understanding how to properly identify and treat noxious weeds can be troublesome. Farmers and ranchers understand it is important to know how to properly care for these weeds so that the landscape isn’t over-run and taken over. Nevada Farm Bureau has a long-standing tradition of support for management and control of noxious weeds. Central Nevada Farm Bureau is teaming up with the Nevada Department of Agriculture to host the first noxious weed workshop in Dyer, NV.
Sean Gephart is the Noxious Weed Coordinator at the Nevada Department of Agriculture, and will be sharing his knowledge on all there is to know about noxious weeds. Topics range from identification, proper treatment, originality of species and the effects weeds can have on a farm/ranch operation.
Farm Bureau members and all interested individuals are encouraged to attend the noxious weed workshop on Tuesday, May 30, at the Fish Lake Valley Community Center NV-264, Dyer NV 89010. The noxious weed workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is an excellent opportunity if you are interested in how to identify, treat and get rid of noxious weeds.
