Weed Free Forage

What is the Weed Free Forage Program?

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 this standard 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.
