Noxious Weed Program

Listed Otero County Noxious Weeds

Herbicides intended to manage county listed noxious weeds are available to Otero County landowners with a private applicators license. The district has a few requirements to participate in the cost-share program...

Each year the Otero County Commission grants funding to the Otero SWCD for noxious weed treatment. A Commercial Applicator conducts treatments to help control the transport of noxious weed seed to un-infested areas. The Otero SWCD assists landowners with the management of noxious weeds on their private lands with the financial assistance from various grant resources such as the Bureau of Land Management and New Mexico Energy Minerals and Natural Resources Department. If you would like to participate in this program complete the form above and return it to the Otero SWCD office at 3501 Mesa Village Drive, Alamogordo, NM 88310.
