Spraying Thistles

Today, the Nicollet County Board of Commissioners approved paying a bill amounting to $5,612.17. This was to cover the cost of chemical to spray thistles in county road right of way. The application and time spent would have to be added to this amount to get a true cost to the county in the ongoing effort to control noxious weeds.
Road right of ways have become the last bastion of weeds like thistles. Farmers fields are clean as a whistle because of the seed varieties and weed control measures used. If left unchecked, we would see road ditches rampant with thistles. end
