Noxious Weeds

Overview


The Department is a local county branch of government established to enforce the Kansas Noxious Weed Law (KSA 2-1314) within the boundaries of Dickinson County. We treat all noxious weeds found on county property and contract with Kansas Department of Transportation, railroads, and townships to treat noxious weeds.

The Department researches and promotes the most economical herbicide or cultural control methods for our area, climate, and conditions to provide recommendations to landowners in the control of noxious weeds on their properties. We also share the cost of herbicides required by landowners and operators in the county to treat noxious weeds on their property.
