Farm Coalition Seeking State Help To Combat Weeds

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Invaders have taken over large swaths of California land, and a coalition met in Sacramento this week to seek help from the state Legislature.

The California Farm Bureau says invasive weeds choke thousands of acres in the state, harming livestock and wildlife, intensifying wildfires and threatening natural diversity.

A bill before the Legislature would boost the work of local Weed Management Areas, which use a variety of strategies to fight invasive weeds.
