Noxious Weed Free Forage & Mulch

NWFF&M Certification

Ohio Seed Improvement Association has been designated as the official Noxious Weed Free Forage and Mulch (NWFF&M) Certification Agency in Ohio. Program standards comply with the Regional Weed Free Forage Certification Standards developed by the Weed Free Forage Committee of the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA). This voluntary certification program is designed to assure that forage (straw, hay, cubes and pellets) and mulch sold with proper certification identification meets minimum standards designed to limit the spread of noxious weeds. Buyers are provided assurance that forage and mulch certified through this program meets these minimum standards.

Forage and mulch certified under the OSIA certification program with proper certification documents or markings attached will be eligible to be shipped into restricted areas in the United States and Canada where only forage and mulch certified under the Regional Forage Certification Standards can be used.
