Overviewtall whitetop

The NRCS provides cost share assistance to agricultural producers to remove or control herbaceous weeds, including invasive, noxious and prohibited plants, on private and public land.


Herbaceous weed control improves forage conditions for domestic livestock or wildlife.

The practice will:

  • Enhance accessibility, quantity, and quality of forage and/or browse
  • Restore or release native or create desired plant communities and wildlife habitat consistent with the ecological site
  • Protect soils
  • Control erosion
  • Reduce fine-fuels fire hazard and improve air quality

Conditions Where the Practice Applies

Herbaceous weed control is applicable on range and pasture land where removal, reduction, or manipulation of herbaceous vegetation is desired. This practice does not apply to active cropland. For active cropland, use Integrated Pest Management (Practice Code 595).

Eligible lands include range and pasture on both private and public land allotments.

Financial Assistance

NRCS will provide eligible landowners with financial payments for the cost for chemical and its application. Historically underserved producers, including beginning, socially disadvantaged, and limited resource farmers and ranchers may be eligible for a higher payment rate. Payments will be made at the current, established program payment rates.
