How is Forage Certified?
Contact Dawson-Gosper County Weed Control to make an
inspection prior to harvesting. Certification is based on a
thorough visual inspection. A "Certificate of Inspection" form
is issued to the producer/landowner if the crop meets the North
American Weed Managament Association requirements. The
forage certification includes surrounding ditches, fence rows,
roads, and easement, right-of-way or buffer zones surrounding
the outside edge of the crop.
Dawson-Gosper Weed Control will make the inspection at no cost to Dawson and Gosper County producers. The producer is responsible for the cost of the forage tags.
