The North Dakota Department of Agriculture is polling people to help determine what plants should be declared noxious weeds.

"I wouldn't call it a popularity contest, but we very much want to know which weeds people think are the biggest problem here," says Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring.

During the last legislative sessions, lawmakers ordered a review of the noxious weed list. The noxious weed designation is important because the lion's share of weed control funds go toward noxious weeds, and failure to control noxious weeds can be a class B misdemeanor.
