Welcome

A Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) was recently formed in Mississippi.  The Mississippi CWMA is a 501(c)3 organization and was organized exclusively for the charitable, agricultural, scientific, literary and educational purposes:

 

·  To encourage the proper use of integrated weed management methods within the state of Mississippi and surrounding states.

·  To establish weed management priorities needing attention in the state.

·  To promote education that encourages public awareness of exotic invasive and noxious vegetations (weeds) that leads to sound and sustaining land stewardship.

·  To promote and support university programs in applied research and extension that will address exotic invasive and noxious weed problems in Mississippi and surrounding states.

·  To support and foster cooperation with commercial, private, non-profit and public organizations/interests within Mississippi and surrounding states for the resolution of exotic invasive and noxious vegetation (weed) problems.

·  To update and maintain state legislation and regulations pertaining to exotic, Invasive noxious vegetation and their management.

As of December 2009, over 40 governmental and private organizations signed a memorandum of agreement to participate in the MS CWMA with each having an opportunity to have a representation on the CWMA Board of Directors.
