Resources for Noxious Weed Management in Colorado

Colorado’s Noxious Weed Act (35-5.5 CRS) establishes a noxious weed list, and the Colorado Department of Agriculture  works with counties to develop and implement noxious weed management plans. Check out the Colorado Department of Agriculture website for information on contacting your local noxious weed manager, more about their programs and resources for addressing noxious weeds, and best management practices.

CSU’s Small Acreage Management has resources, articles and fact sheets for managing weedy species.

The Colorado Weed Management Association has information on impacts, what you can do to help, and Colorado’s noxious weed list.

Yellow Cypress spurge

Cypress spurge is on the CO Noxious Weed List A. A “List A” designation means that this species is either not known in CO, or is of very limited distribution and so eradication is required. Photo by InAweofGod’sCreation available on Flickr with CC BY-SA 2.0
