Nominations sought for Noxious Weed Advisory Committee
BROOMFIELD, Colo. — The Colorado Noxious Weed Advisory Committee, a critical link between the citizens of Colorado and the Colorado Department of Agriculture, is seeking nominations to fill one vacant position representing the interests of agricultural producers.
The primary responsibility of the committee is to discuss Colorado’s weed management challenges and craft solutions that best reflect public and private interests. The committee makes recommendations to the department concerning designation and classification of state noxious weeds; development and implementation of state weed management plans; and prescribed techniques for eradication, containment, and suppression of state noxious weeds.
“The members of this committee play an important role in shaping department and state policy concerning noxious weeds. Their recommendations help protect landowners, agricultural lands and the environment,” said Patty York, the Noxious Weed program manager. “The committee is accepting nominations for a person representing ag producers, who engages in farming or ranching or non-traditional specialty crops production.”
The committee’s 17 members are appointed by the commissioner of Agriculture and represent varying interests and geographic locations on the committee. Members serve two year terms and the committee meets quarterly, with most meetings occurring at CDA’s Broomfield office. At least one meeting and corresponding field trip are usually held out of the Denver area annually.
Nominations must be submitted through an online application form no later than Friday, June 3, 2022. For more information, please view the Noxious Weed Program’s Advisory Committee web page.
Bromegrass is headed out and native meadows are beginning to grow rapidly with warmer temperatures the past couple weeks. Is now the time to make grass hay?
