Control of Noxious Weeds
Under the Noxious Weeds Act, 1936, it is an offence not to prevent the growth and spread of noxious weeds. Owners and occupiers of land must ensure that they abide by the provision in the act. Noxious weeds, which must be controlled, are ragwort, thistle, dock and wild oat.
For control methods, please contact the Local Teagasc Advisor or, alternatively, consult the Teagasc fact sheet on ragwort at www.teagasc.ie
