County Road Ditch Spraying
Sibley County will ONLY be spraying County road ditches for noxious weeds. The spray is applied directly to the noxious weeds.
Chemicals used: Tordon K, Transline, Escort, Milestone, Forefront and 2-4D.
Anyone wishing to NOT have a specific county road ditch sprayed should contact the
Sibley County Public Works Office at 507-237-4092 before March 30, 2018 for a form.
Landowners/renters are required to flag the no spray zone with “Owner Will Maintain” flags provided by Sibley County Public Works. The use of these flags will aid Sibley County Public Works maintenance crews in identifying which areas landowners/renters do not want sprayed. Flags are available at the Public Works office in Gaylord and at all county highway garages in Arlington, Gaylord, Gibbon, Green Isle, Henderson, Winthrop and at the Sibley County Gravel Pit.
By requesting that Sibley County does not spray your road ditch, landowners/renters agree to maintain the noxious weeds and brush in the specified road ditches in their entirety. When landowners/renters do not respond, we will assume it is acceptable to spray. The County may begin spraying on or after March 30, 2018.
