Alberta is a beautiful place, so it's no big question why legislation has long been in place to protect its valuable assets from invasive species.
Scentless Chamomile (Mayweed) has been elevated to a Prohibited Noxious weed in Northern Sunrise County, and under law, landowners are mandated to destroy them.
Early detection of harmful crop pests allows producers an opportunity to utilze available control measures or plan rotations to manage outbreaks.
Northern Sunrise County is a participating member of Veterinary Services Incorporated (V.S.I.)
Our programs and strategies have been developed with achieving outcomes on set goals, namely;
- to monitor the water quality
- delivery of Alternative Land Use Services
- protection of the natural environment, i.e. water and soil
- re-establish Fish Habitat
- promotion of awareness of agricultural services
Trees are a valuable asset to any landscape.
The Agricultural Fieldman and his department are responsible for overseeing Agricultural Provincial Acts, Municipal Bylaws and Agricultural Policies and provide residents with a range of information and services aimed at protecting and enhancing agriculture and rural living within Northern Sunrise County.
Agricultural Service Board - The ASB is the advisory body for agricultural matters and is responsible for addressing current and local agricultural issues.
