Weed control

Reported via mobile in the Vegetation (grass/hedges/trees) (NH) category anonymously at 10:22, Mon 26 June 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4716076.

We are farming landowners neighbouring the A38 and take considerable care and spend huge amounts of money controlling the ragwort on our land. This is important for the livestock and the hay we make. The A38 is overrun with ragwort again and this inevitably spreads on to our land meaning our efforts to control it are futile. Please can you confirm when the ragwort will be sprayed and pulled up this year. It is already in flower so it needs to be done very soon before the seeds spread. I have reported this issue in previous years.
