Ag in Action 2017

A one-mile stretch of salt ceder was treated in July (left). The same plant is shown in November

(right). Yearly monitoring of salt cedar is necessary because plants may come back from the roots.

This spring, insects were used to

help control Dalmation toadflax.

Five employees (including the two at

left) went to spread the insects on a

Wheatland County ranch to help with

biocontrol of toadflax. A workshop

was held to help start the development

of an insect collection site for control

of the noxious weed.
