Weed projects get county backing

Box Elder County commissioners signed a letter of support allowing the Northern Utah Conservation District (NUCD) and USU Extension to move forward in their applications for grant money to help with weed control in the county.
While both entities have the same goal, which is to eradicate invasive weeds like Rush Skeletonweed and Medusahead Rye, Lyle Holmgren with USU Extension said the approach would be different for each group.
“Ours will be more of a public education approach,” he said.  He said the grant money USU Extension hopes to receive is a Cap Ferry Ag Research Grant, named after Corinne rancher and Utah legislator Miles “Cap” Ferry. With that funding in hand, USU Extension hopes to set up a weed website where property owners can get a “rapid response” on what weeds are out there, along with general control information and pictures to help identify them.
