Weed control help offered
Box Elder County Weed Department, along with the Northern Utah Soil Conservation District, is anxious to work with private landowners to control noxious weeds this spring and summer.
Noxious weeds have become an important issue for agriculture groups throughout the state. It is estimated that noxious weeds costs taxpayers millions of dollars each year in lost production, lower crop yields, lost of wildlife habitat and recreation.
