This is a friendly reminder that Lac Ste. Anne County’s annual crop and weed inspection program to prevent the spread of noxious and prohibited weeds is underway.

Weed inspectors have begun at Range Road 50 and will be working eastward throughout the summer. More information about what inspectors are looking for, the Alberta Weed Control Act, and other frequently asked questions can be found online.

During the inspection, the Agricultural Services team inspects all private and County properties for noxious and prohibited noxious weeds as per the Alberta Weed Control Act.

Inspectors will attempt to contact residents in person before conducting their inspections.

As always, inspection crews will exercise extreme care when entering fields to minimize any potential spread of crop issues from field to field. Precautions include the use of disposable boots and/or disinfection with a bleach solution prior to entering any field.

Keep an eye out for additional updates and information regarding this year's inspection. If you have questions or comments about the annual inspection program, please contact Agricultural Services at 780.785.3411 (toll-free 1.866.880.5722) or [email protected].

Weed and Pest Inspectors are on the Job from May to September

The County has appointed nine weed and pest inspectors for the season. In accordance with the Alberta Weed Control Act and the Alberta Agricultural Pests Act, these inspectors will enforce and monitor compliance with regulations throughout the municipality. Residents are encouraged to report any weeds or pests to help benefit the agricultural community and uphold regulatory standards.

These inspectors play a vital role in identifying and managing invasive plant species and pests that threaten crops, natural habitats, and ecosystems. By enforcing regulations and implementing control measures, they help prevent the spread of harmful organisms, safeguarding agricultural productivity and biodiversity. Their efforts contribute to sustainable land management practices, protecting the County’s valuable resources for future generations.
