Noxious Weeds - Alamosa County's Worst Weed Offenders and How to Deal with Them

"Eradication" means reducing the reproductive success of a noxious weed species or specified noxious weed populations in largely uninfested regions to zero and permanently eliminating the species or population within a specified period of time.

"Elimination" means the removal or destruction of all emerged, growing plants of a population designated for eradication by the Commissioner.

"Containment" means maintaining an intensively managed buffer zone that separates infested regions, where suppression activities prevail, from largely uninfested regions.

"Suppression" means reducing the vigor of noxious weed populations within an infested region, decreasing the propensity of noxious weed species to spread to surrounding lands, deploying a wide variety of integrated management techniques.
