Minnesota Noxious Weeds Handbooks, Trainings, Reports
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture, your local Minnesota Extension office or your County Agriculture Inspector will be your best sources for information on the Noxious Weed Program and the current State Prohibited Noxious Weeds List. In some cases, they may have pictures to share of the various weeds separately or in bound format.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation has developed a booklet, Minnesota Noxious Weeds, which can be downloaded. It has pictures and information on the weeds listed on the Noxious Weed List developed by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
If you would like to have a good book with excellent pictures of the various weeds around the country and of those we deal with locally, the suggestion is that you purchase a copy of the Weeds of The Great Plains and the information on how and where to order is listed in this area.
