Learn at Lunch!

Presenter: Andrea Moe with Nevada Department of Agriculture.

Class Description: Andrea will provide the class with identification techniques for Nevada noxious weeds and discuss control methods. The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) defines a noxious weed as “any species of plant which is, or likely to be, detrimental or destructive and difficult to control or eradicate.” Per NRS 555.130 “The State Quarantine Officier may declare by regulation the weeds of the state that are noxious weeds, but a weed must not be designated as noxious which is already introduced and established in the State to such an extent as to make its control or eradication impracticable in the judgment of the State Quarantine Officer.” All noxious weeds are regulated by the Nevada Department of Agriculture.
