Notice of Intent to Spray - Cannery Hedgerow - 1111 E. Covell Blvd

This is a notice of intent to spray RoundUp Pro throughout habitat hedgerow on the east side of the Cannery Farm complex at 1111 E. Covell Blvd., during operational hours on Friday, November 22. The target pest is pepperweed.  There are no effective non-chemical controls for these weeds. Pepperweed can only be controlled by herbicide, and mature pepperweed seeds are collected and removed from the site whenever possible to prevent future outbreaks, as pepperweed is a high priority to remove.  In addition, pepperweed grows from large, perennial underground root systems, and cutting or pulling these weeds encourages more growth.  Mulch and hand-weeding is used to control other species.  The areas will be posted with the intent to spray, and after application, as required in the city's Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program Policies and Procedures.

More information on the IPM Program, including the current Policies and Procedures guidance, can be found on the city's webpage: Integrated Pest Management
