Integrated Management of Leafy Spurge
Leafy spurge is found in pasture, rangeland, cropland, roadsides, shelterbelts, and other non-cultivated areas. Cultivation will control leafy spurge in conventional cropland, but the weed can become the dominant species in reduced-till cropland, pasture, and rangeland if not controlled.Leafy Spurge

Leafy Spurge Control Using Flea Beetles

The Thistles of North DakotaCanada thistle
This publication contains information on biology and identification of many native and introduced thistles found in ND.

Perennial and Biennial Thistle Control
Thistles are especially troublesome following cool, wet summers and falls, when seed production and seedling establishment are high. An integrated weed control program that combines chemical, cultural (such as crop rotation or grass competition), mechanical and biological methods is most likely to be successful
