Please be advised that the spray exemption deadline is set for April 27, 2018. Spray Exemption Agreements can be filled out, in person, at the Grovedale Office or at the Field Services Office in Valleyview.
A few points to remember with Spray Exemption Agreements are:
- the agreement only pertains to the ditch, or right-of-way, adjacent to the landowners property;
- if a landowner does not follow the guidelines within the exempted area set out within the agreement (ie. noxious/prohibited noxious weeds and/or tall vegetation present), the MD shall immediately take steps to control vegetation (which may include herbicide application);
- agreements are valid only for one (1) calendar year; and
- only the registered landowner may apply for a Spray Exemption Agreement.
If you have any further questions, please call the Agriculture Services Department at 780-524-7621.
