NOXIOUS WEEDS COST MORE TO KEEP, THAN TREAT!!!

The Kansas Legislature has declared 12 weeds noxious. They are:

Kudzu Field Bindweed Russian Knapweed
Hoary Cress Canada Thistle Quackgrass
Leafy Spurge Bur Ragweed Pignut
Musk Thistle Johnsongrass Sericea Lespedeza

There are four Noxious Weeds found in Coffey County. They are: Sericea Lespedza, Musk Thistle, Field Bindweed, and Johnsongrass.

Chemicals may be purchased from the Noxious Weed Department to treat noxious weeds in Coffey County on a cost-share basis. Coffey County purchases chemicals at wholesale and then absorbs 25% - 50% of the cost. Chemicals may be purchased for NOXIOUS WEEDS in Coffey County Only.
