Crocus 1

The Agricultural Service Board’s (ASB’s) of the Special Areas assist producers in many ways, while working in accordance within the regulations of the following Acts:

The ASB provides a strong weed control program within Special Areas. Restricted noxious and noxious weeds are a main target of the board. Regular control is a consistent goal of the ASB’s, with problem weed sites being controlled, documented, GPS’d and reinspected as necessary. Roadside spraying is performed to aid in weed control. The ASB’s have herbicide spraying equipment that is available to rent.
