Weed Free Forage and Gravel
There is a growing demand for weed free forage in North America as a preventative program for the spread of noxious weeds. This program has developed a list of standards that should provide land managers assurance that noxious weeds will not be spread through the movement of forage.
The goal of the Weed Free Forage and Gravel standards is to provide a guideline to set minimum requirements for uniform participation of the various provinces and states in the program. The standards are designed:
- to provide some assurance to all participants that forage certified through this program meets a minimum acceptable standard.
- to provide continuity between the various provinces and states in the program.
- to limit the spread of noxious weeds through forage and mulch.
