BISMARCK (AP) — The state Agriculture Department is holding a public hearing on possible changes to North Dakota’s state noxious weeds list.

The hearing is 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Best Western Seven Seas Hotel in Mandan.

Noxious weeds are those that are required by law to be controlled. The Legislature last year mandated a review of the state’s list.

There currently are 12 weeds on the list. Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring says officials are proposing removing field bindweed and yellow starthistle, and adding yellow toadflax.
