Notify Your Neighbor

Notification of vegetation management along rights-of-way is important. An effective notification program can increase compliance, reduce complaints and improve productivity.


Corteva Agriscience has developed Notify Your Neighbor, a resource guide containing strategies, techniques and key messages for effective communications with landowners and the general public.

Program Overview

To help vegetation managers effectively discuss IVM programs with today’s landowners, this guide contains five key sections that dive into important topics and provide additional resources to review, such as instructional videos or informative brochures.
