100 acres," he says, "I think
we're going to see more

The purpose of the Weed
Control District is to provide a
cooperative effort between
landowners, the county, and
the state, to control noxious
weeds. Landowners will not be
forced into a financial burden
to control weeds.
With the formation of a
County Weed Control District,
the State Department of
Agriculture will provide, to
the county, a jeep spray rig for
use by landowners and herbi
cides for use on certain
noxious weeds.
If a majority of farm owners
sign the petition, the county
