Agriculture and horticulture are vital to the residents and economy of Harvey County. The Harvey County Noxious Weed Department is committed to doing its part in providing safe and advantageous production conditions for farmers, ranchers and residents.

Noxious weeds are weeds that can be harmful to crops, livestock, wildlife and humans.

The noxious weed department uses herbicides to eradicate weeds deemed noxious by the state along rights of way in Harvey County. The county also contracts with townships and the Kansas Department of Transportation to spray their roads.

Throughout the year, the noxious weed department also provides tree trimming along roads and bridges.
