Is Your Forage Forest Friendly?
Standlee Premium Western Forage® offers several Certified noxious weed free forage options. “Certified” means that a forage product is free of any noxious weeds. A majority of Certified noxious weed free forage programs are based on weed free forage standards set by the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA). NAISMA provides a list of noxious weeds found in North America, and many states start with that list and add other noxious weeds found in their states as qualifying factors. Many states accept these minimum standards.
The benefit to you is that Certified forage products can be fed in protected National lands without the risk of spreading unwanted noxious weeds, which squeeze out other naturally occurring vegetation. Certified Noxious Weed Free products are required by Federal and State authorities in protected areas. Each state's requirement on Noxious Weed Free Forage differs, so please check with your state's Department of Agriculture for specific details.
