Application2010 Additional Year Application
Mesa County Cost-Share for Control of Noxious Weeds
Keep this sheet for further reference.
Please read thoroughly and fill out the Application carefully and completely. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Questions can be directed to Jude Sirota, Mesa County Pest Inspector, (970) 255-7120.
1. This application is for a cost-share for treatment of noxious weeds only (see attached list). Treatment of other weeds is not
covered. Weeds should be identified by the Mesa County Pest Inspector (970-255-7120), Colorado State University Cooperative
Extension agents (970-244-1834), Natural Resource Conservation Service (970-242-4511 ext. 3) or other qualified weed specialists.
2. Applications must be submitted by the deadlines of March 5, June 5 and September 5, 2010. Only one application per year is
necessary. There is NO deadline for List A species. Eligible weeds may be treated prior to approval of this Application as long as
effective herbicides, appropriate rates and timing of treatment have been followed and treatment has occurred within the current year.
Due to limited funding, no guarantee is made that the funding will be approved for treatments done prior to approval.
3. Eligible weeds may be treated by the landowner or their assignee, or by a licensed commercial pesticide applicator. Mesa County
will pay 75% of the cost for herbicide, adjuvants, and surfactants applied by the landowner OR 50% for treatment by a licensed
commercial pesticide applicator, AND/OR $8/hour for labor for mechanical control, if appropriate. A maximum of $500 will be paid
out by the County per landowner. Although landowners may personally apply herbicides to the noxious weeds, or utilize any agent
for application purposes, reimbursement for labor costs for herbicide application shall only apply to a licensed commercial pesticide
applicator. Any use of a landowner’s employee for herbicide application purposes shall not be reimbursable.
4. Limited tax dollars available for this Cost-Share Program will be used in the best manner possible. It is advisable to seek
appropriate weed control information from the Mesa County Pest Inspector, Colorado State University Extension Fact Sheets, the
Natural Resources Conservation Service, product labels, or qualified weed control specialists before completing your application.
Ineffective materials, incorrect rates, improper timing, and applications not consistent with the herbicide label will not be cost-shared.
5. Participants must treat eligible weeds on all areas of their property, including private roadsides, field accesses, fence lines, field
corners, ditches and waste areas as well as producing fields, unless prior arrangements are made with the Mesa County Pest Inspector.
Large infestations may need to be treated in phases, which should be indicated in the Noxious Weed Management Plan (page 5).
6. Only properties on the Mesa County property tax rolls are eligible for Cost-Share Funds.

for Completing the Additional Year Noxious Weed Cost Share Application Plan
A NEW Weed Plan (page 5) is only necessary if there are changes to your previous years’ Weed Plan.
Check the Prioritized Noxious Weed List for Management on Private Property (pages 8-10) included in
this application to make sure the weeds you have are eligible for this program. You must have at least one of
the listed weeds to be eligible.
Additional Year Noxious Weed Management Plan (Page 4)
1) Check the box at top of page and fill in year. Fill in landowner information, including name, address, 2) List target weeds: use accepted common names or scientific names and indicate who identified the 3) Check whether there are changes to your Weed Plan (fill out new Weed Plan) or Weed Map (send new map); indicate if you will use a professional applicator. 4) List any weed related workshops you have attended. Several workshops are offered locally each year by the Division of Pest Management, CSU Extension, Natural Resource Conservation Service and others. Training in weed management increases the chances of successful weed control. 5) Read the agreement paragraph and sign and date at the bottom. The Inspector will sign the form when
Additional Year Noxious Weed Management Plan – Table (Page 5)
Complete the Weed Management Plan ONLY if there are changes in weed species, herbicide to be used,
rates or timing. If there are no changes, we will use the previous year’s Plan.
1) Weed Treatment Plan
a. Target Weed: List the common name and/or scientific name of the target weed or weeds.
b. Management Method: The management method MUST be an accepted, effective measure for
the weed you are trying to control. List all methods intended to be used. Chemical control is the use of herbicides, whether they are traditional herbicides (e.g.
Roundup) or alternatives such as vinegar or corn gluten. The herbicide you use must be
effective for control of the weeds you have listed.
Mechanical control is generally effective only for annual and biennial weeds. Controls
include tillage, hoeing, hand grubbing, chopping, etc.
Biological control is the use of grazing animals (sheep, goats, cattle), diseases, or insects
whose feeding on the weeds decreases its productivity. Biological control usually will not
eradicate a weed, it will only reduce the population and/or stop it from reproducing.
Biological control is not reimbursable under this Application.
Cultural Controls include planting competitive plants, proper irrigation, fertilization and
general good land stewardship practices.
c. Herbicide Recommendation:
i. Product: Select an herbicide that effectively controls the weed species you are targeting.
Herbicide recommendations should be confirmed by a professional. ii. Rate: List the rate as recommended or as listed on the label.
iii. Rates are given either as an amount per acre (for broadcast spraying) or an amount per iv. DO NOT USE MORE OR LESS THAN THE LABELED RATE! The label is the
LAW. Effective weed management is based on using the RIGHT herbicide at the
RIGHT time at the RIGHT rate.
d. Timing/Growth Stage: List the approximate time (month) or specific growth stage (bud/bloom,
seedling, etc.) the weed will be treated. It is critical that each weed species be treated at a specific time of the year or at a specific growth stage for effective control. 2) Surfactants and adjuvants: These are additives to the spray tank that help the herbicide penetrate,
spread on or stick to the leaf surface, making the herbicide more effective. Many herbicides require
an additive. Check the label for the type of additive or ask your herbicide dealer. The program covers
costs for these products.
3) Phased Management Plan: If the infestations on your property are too large, treatment may need to be
done over a long period of time, perhaps several years. Prioritize the areas to be treated. Small infestations and those on ditches, ponds, and other water sources should be a high priority for treatment. Treating the outer perimeter of large infestations rather than the entire infestation should keep the infestation from getting larger; continue to treat the weeds from the edges to the center. See above information on management methods and treatment timing.
4) Revegetation/Seeding: A weed management plan will not be successful unless some type of
competitive vegetation can be established. This may not be feasible in all areas of your property. Where it is appropriate (for example, producing fields), describe the area to be seeded, the plant species you will use, time (month) and method of planting (direct drilling, interseeding, broadcast), and other land management processes you will use (such as irrigation, fertilization, soil amendments). 5) MAP: We have your map on file. You do not have to submit another map unless the weed infestations
have changed in size or location or new weeds have been found. If you have been a cost-share client
for several years, the size of infestations should be changing and a new map may be requested.

MESA COUNTY, COLORADO, by and through the MESA COUNTY PEST INSPECTOR Prioritized Noxious Weed List for Management on Private Property
The following list of weeds is intended to be used in making decisions about the weeds that will be eligible for the Mesa County Noxious Weed Cost Share Program. You must have at least one of these weeds on your property to qualify for the Program. Information on the State Noxious Weed Act and State Weed Lists can be found at http://www.colorado.gov/ag/weeds Images of the County Listed Noxious Weeds can be found on the Mesa County Pest Management Web Site: http://www.mesacounty.us/ (go to Departments > Pest Management). Images of
other weeds listed here can be found on various web sites or in the book “Weeds of the West”.
Professional assistance should be obtained to positively identify your weeds.
LIST A - SPECIES TO BE ERADICATED WHEREVER FOUND: List A weeds pose a significant
threat to the State and must be eradicated statewide. List A weeds occur in low numbers or are not
known to be present in Mesa County.
MANAGEMENT GOAL: The County will assist the landowner in all aspects of eradication
including designing management plans, technical information, scouting, herbicide, equipment,
personnel, and Cost-Share funding as available. It is expected that infestations of these weeds will be
small and inexpensive to eradicate if detected early. Repeated treatment and monitoring over a number
of years will be necessary for List A weeds.
LIST B – SPECIES TO BE ERADICATED, SUPRESSED OR CONTAINED: List B weeds to be
eradicated are either low in numbers or not yet present in Mesa County. List B species to be contained or
suppressed are locally abundant in the areas listed in the Table 1. They should be controlled so as to
prevent their spread.
MANAGEMENT GOAL: The County will assist the landowner in all aspects of eradication of
List B weeds (if deemed necessary as mentioned above) including designing management plans, technical information, scouting, herbicide, equipment, personnel, and Cost-Share funding as available. It is expected that infestations of these weeds will be less than one acre in size and relatively inexpensive to treat. For List B weeds to be contained or suppressed (as determined above), the County will provide technical information, assistance with management plans, and Cost-Share funds as available. Repeated treatment and monitoring over a number of years may be necessary for some List B weeds. LIST C – SPECIES TO BE CONTAINED, SUPPRESSED, OR OTHERWISE MANAGED: These
weeds are abundant throughout Mesa County.
MANAGEMENT GOAL: All effort should be made to prevent the spread of these weeds
wherever they occur in Mesa County. These species should be managed to achieve containment, suppression, and reduction of patch size where they are locally abundant and where infestations cross property lines. Eradication is not necessarily a goal for species on this list but should be considered where the infestations are small. The County will provide technical information, assistance with management plans, and Cost-Share funds as available. It is expected that infestations of these weeds will be large (greater than 1 acre) and will be more expensive to treat. Repeated treatment and monitoring over a number of years may be necessary.
