Mapping and Monitoring the Spread of Leafy Spurge

Leafy spurge is a noxious perennial weed that has rapidly spread across much of North America, especially throughout the pastures, hay lands, roads, railways, gravel pits and watersheds of the Prairie Provinces and neighboring states in the US. In 2010, there were approximately 1.3 million acres of pastures, hay lands, roads and railways infested with leafy spurge in Manitoba.
