KNEEHILL COUNTY AGRICULTURE SERVICE BOARD ROADSIDE INVASIVE WEED CONTROL 2018

Invasive weed control remains an Agricultural Service Board priority. During the 2018 season Kneehill County Agriculture Services staff will continue the roadside invasive weed control program by covering all roadsides between Township Road 30-2 and Township Road 32-4. The two Agriculture Services spray units will be applying a residual herbicide and have been instructed to leave a one meter buffer strip between the road allowance and the adjacent land owners’ property. As per policy all roadside spraying will stop 30 meters upon approaching a farmstead or residence, where buildings and trees are within 30 meters of the road allowance and will continue 30 meters past the farmstead or residence. These buffer areas are the responsibility of the adjacent landowner.

In instances where invasive weed species are present in buffer areas, Kneehill County Agriculture Services offers consultations and control solutions to Kneehill County land owners including FREE reverse fenceline spraying. In this program staff will spray from the field side back into the ditch utilizing the Kubota spray unit to control weeds left in the buffer zone. Residents wishing to participate in this or any other Agriculture Services programs can contact the Kneehill County office at 403-443-5541.
