Field research of land lots over a 4865 ha area has demonstrated that the main sources of agricultural lands infestation are raw pieces of land (inarable lands), wood lines, dirt roads or indigested manure, used as organic fertilizer. The specific weight of weeds patches around the power line support is less than 0.013% of all weeds sources, suggesting that there is a minimum damage to agricultural crops, compared to other sources of weeds distribution in the given area. The authors of the paper propose to use chemical treatment with non-selective herbicides as the most effective measure of weeds control around the utility poles, at a cost, according to the results of the research, of 0.21 rub/ha. As a result, the issue of compensation payments to agricultural producers from energy companies should be defined by the cost value of chemical treatment of agricultural lands in zones near utility poles.
