Persons are encouraged to mark the foregoing listed noxious weeds growing in the ditches and rights-of-way for spot spraying in the spring and fall. Marking flags should be large enough, preferably twelve (12) inches square, so they are easily visible from the road. If persons do not want the roads adjoining their property sprayed and choose to mow or control the trees and all noxious weeds themselves or persons who do not want the ditches sprayed because grasses are used for agricultural feed stuffs or hay, they must come to the Davison County Weed Office, 1224 West 5th Avenue, Mitchell, South Dakota and sign a HERBICIDE/PESTICIDE RESTRICTION REQUEST. The chemicals used to control noxious weeds in the rights-of-way may have haying and grazing restrictions.
