UNI Reminds Iowans Not to Mow Some Roadside Grasses

   A program at the University of Northern Iowa that studies and manages vegetation near Iowa's roadways is reminding Iowans of mowing restrictions in the state.
   Mowing is prohibited on state-maintained highway right-of-way and roadside ditches, as well as county secondary roads, state primary roads, and interstate highways prior to July 15th.
   The no-mow period was extended to provide an additional two weeks for hatching and development of young ground-nesting birds and pollinators.
   Iowans are allowed to harvest grass within the state-maintained highway right-of-way for two types of grasses each year:
   1.) Between July 15th and September 1st, for cool-season grasses and forage legumes
   2.) Between July 15th and August 15th, for warm-season native grasses
   A permit must be issued by the DOT before harvesting, unless certain exceptions are met.
   Find the exception information at the DOT website,
