What is a Noxious Weed?

A noxious weed is a plant that’s considered to be injurious to the environment, animals, crops, and people. Noxious weeds are subject to government regulations for control and management.

Noxious weeds cause millions of dollars in damage to North Dakota crops and forage. Many additional dollars are spent in both public and private efforts to control these weeds. In addition to their agronomic impact, noxious weeds adversely affect rural and urban landscapes, tax revenues, recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat.
