The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has awarded $537,000 to combat noxious weeds across Minnesota with 35 projects being funded through the 2020 Noxious Weed and Invasive Plant Grant. Monies will be used to purchase equipment and supplies, conduct mapping and outreach activities, and hire private applicators to manage noxious weeds.

Awardees include: over $8,000 to Big Stone Soil and Water Conservation District for prevention, eradication and control of noxious weeds; $7,400 to East Otter Tail SWCD for Common Tansy and Wild Parsnip control; $10,000 for West Otter Tail SWCD for the Becker, Clay, Hubbard, Mahnomen and West Otter Tail Collaboration; and $50,000 to Traverse SWCD for the Traverse-Wilkin Weed Management Partnership.
