A number of certified noxious weed-seed-free hay programs are based on weed-free forage standards set by the North American Weed Management Association.
NAWMA provides a list of noxious weeds found in North America and many states start with that list and add other noxious weeds, found in their states, as qualifying factors.
Most of the state programs listed here offer applications and other information to help growers use the programs.
