Annual Weed and Crop Inspection Scheduled To Begin Soon

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 will begin shortly. Weed inspectors will be starting in the NW corner of the county and 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.

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 Agriculture Services at 780.785.3411 (toll-free 1.866.880.5722) or AgServices (@)
