Weed Quarantine Issued in McIntosh

Agriculture Commissioner Roger Johnson has issued a weed quarantine on 40 acres of land in McIntosh County.

Johnson ordered the quarantine on Monday in response to reports from the county weed board that the land was infested with leafy spurge. Johnson says the property owner failed to control the weed.

The action prevents any hay or crops from being removed from the land.
