  • ASTA, Noxious Weed Seed, Working Group

As a result of the heightened state-level activity surrounding weeds, ASTA has created a new Noxious Weed Seed Working Group. The objective of the group is to address noxious weed seed issues as they arise in the states.

The first meeting of the working group will be Thursday, November 1, 8:00-8:30 a.m. in Kansas City, in conjunction with the Western Seed Conference and the ASTA Farm & Lawn Seed Conference. This will be an organizational meeting, open to all interested ASTA members.

The first project will be to determine the economic impact of the addition of a weed seed – as prohibited or restricted – to a state’s noxious weed seed list. To participate in the Working Group, and to receive notices of future meetings, contact Pat Miller.
