HHHMMM, I don't know if a state can force a landowner to control invasive species when they don't make an effort to. Here in Michigan, that European Milfoil is everywhere, private ad public land and I don't see any efforts made to try and control it. I don't think there is anything to control it with first of all. That stuff is all along public roads as it grows in ditches and wetlands where cattails use tog row but now have been choked out by the milfoil. If you fear being 'busted', then contact a local sportsman's club or Pheasants Forever, Ducks Unlimited, or the Wild Turkey Federation and they'll send an expert out to evaluate your property. Tell them you want to plant crops that will benefit those species and they will asses what you got going on thus telling you if something invasive needs to be addressed. Back in the mid-90's I had PF come out to my land and help me plot what to plant and where to plant.
