Module 3 Instructions:
This module utilizes a case library illustrating a variety of weed control methods and the use of these methods in different circumstances.
Course participants should review the case studies presented and consider alternate control plans. Three sample problems are located on this page. Study these problems and create your own plan for dealing with the problem. Click on the "sample solution" button to see one or more alternate solutions. Many of the situations you will encounter as a weed officer will not have a single "right" solutions and will instead have multiple possible solutions.
- A complaint regarding uncontrolled leafy spurge and canada thistle on an empty lot on the west edge of Woburn was received by a weed board member. He has asked you, the weed officer to check it out. You drive to the lot and find it both leafy spurge and canada thistle in bloom. A walk across the lot and around the perimeter reveals a level surface with no apparent obstruction to mowing except tall grass and weeds which would make it difficult. There are rows of tomato plants adjoining the lot on both the east and west sides. A check on ownership indicates the taxes are two years past due and the owner lives in Bellvue, MD. What do you do?
