Grants Available to Fight Weeds


The Colorado Department of Agriculture has grant funds available to help fight seven species of noxious weeds on Colorado’s eastern plains.

Counties and Conservation Districts are eligible to apply for grant funds through the High Plains Invasives Project, which was established through a Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative grant funded by USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The seven species that are to be managed include leafy spurge, Dalmatian toadflax, diffuse knapweed, spotted knapweed, Russian knapweed, salt cedar (tamarisk), and African rue.

Contact information for local noxious weed programs and conservation districts may be found atwww.colorado.gov/ag/csd. Additional questions may be directed to Michael Rigirozzi, Colorado Department of Agriculture, High Plains Weed Specialist, (303) 239-5738 or go towww.colorado.gov/ag/weeds.
