Public Roadside Spraying Program
As an Agricultural Service Board priority in 2014 ASB staff will be continuing control of regulated weeds with our roadside spraying program. We will be travelling all county owned roads from Township road 30-4 south to the County boundary, spraying a residual herbicide to control all invasive weeds. Invasive weed control throughout the remainder of the County will be done on a requested or reported basis and spot spraying only.
The ASB spray crew has been instructed to leave a one meter buffer strip between the road allowance and the adjacent land owner's property when applying herbicides for weed control. Weeds within this buffer zone may be controlled with permission from the landowner, and conducting a Reverse Fence line spraying operation allowing the ASB to drive on their property spraying back into the road allowance.
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. This area is the responsibility of the adjacent landowner except in the situation where noxious weeds are present, in which case the Ag Fieldman will participate with the landowner to gain control.
In addition to inspecting and controlling weeds in all county rural areas, the Kneehill County ASB is contracted and responsible for weed inspection within most urban centres.
