Cooperative Weed Management Areas

Cooperative Weed Management Areas, commonly referred to as CWMA's, are one of the newest and most effective ways to battle noxious and invading weeds in the United States.

Why are CWMA's so successful?

Technological advances in machinery, chemicals, and biological controls have benefited the industry in tremendous ways in the last several years giving tremendous power to individual departments and agencies. In the past these departments and agencies relied on their own employees to get work done in their respective jurisdiction, often blaming and being blamed by others for encroaching weed problems. Weeds are everyone's problem. Through the development of CWMA's, most of the "blame game" is replaced by the cooperative efforts and resources of multiple departments and agencies across jurisdictional boundaries. Often CWMA's are able to secure substantial government funding because the scope of projects can be increased to include weeds across federal, state, county, municipal, and private properties.
