The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services regulates the movement of noxious weeds. The Noxious Weeds Law provides authority to the Board of Agriculture and Consumer Services (BACS) to add or delete weeds from Virginia’s noxious weeds list.

Proposed weeds are submitted to the Noxious Weeds Advisory Committee who assesses and recommends to BACS the addition or removal of weeds from the list.

The movement of a listed noxious weed requires a completed Noxious Weeds Permit Application. Return the completed application to or the Office of Plant Industry Services, P.O. Box 1163, Richmond, VA 23218.
