  • Weeds to Watch - Wild Parsnips

    Wild parsnips (Pastinaca sativa) is a weed to watch and control in Meeker and McLeod Counties. Plants are primarily found along the edges of fields, ditches, and areas that are not in crop production. There can be concerns if hay is made with these plants due to their toxicity when ingested.
  • Taking a good soil sample

Representative samples are as important to get good data back for those farming thousands of acres to those planting the home garden. Find more information here.
