Weed Control


There are currently 23 species of weeds that are classified as noxious and have the potential to negatively impact agricultural lands. These noxious weeds are currently regulated under the provision of the Weed Control Act within the province of Ontario. Inspection and enforcement for matters relating to noxious weeds within the County of Lanark are presently administered by an appointed Weed Inspector employed by the County.
