Noxious and Invasive Weed Program


The Noxious and Invasive Weed Team works with local governments and landowners to protect the environment, public health, public roads, crops, livestock, or other property in Minnesota from the injurious impacts of noxious and invasive weeds. The Noxious Weed Advisory Committee represents a wide range of agencies and organizations. This committee advises the Commissioner of Agriculture about plant species regulation, weed management and implementation of Minnesota’s Noxious Weed Law. Enforcement of the Noxious Weed Law is a shared responsibility with local governments.
