Weed Control Assistance Available to Harford County Farmers

Thistles are considered a noxious weed in Maryland.

The Harford County Weed Control Program, in cooperation with the Maryland Department of Agriculture, is available to assist farmers in controlling noxious weeds on their properties. Noxious weeds in Maryland include thistles, Johnsongrass, Shattercane, and multi-floral rose; by law, these weeds must be controlled. The Harford County Weed Control Program will provide hand gun spot spraying for these weeds in pastures, crop fields, fence rows, building lots, and non-crop areas. The spray charge for farm properties is $45.00 per hour plus material. For more information, contact Nathan Anderson, coordinator, at 410-776-1526 or Jim Calao, MDA Representative, at 410-841-5920.
