Weed Management Guides: managing weeds for biodiversity
Two new weed management guides are now available on the Weeds CRC website.
African boxthorn (Lycium ferocissimum) and Coolatai grass (Hyparrhenia
hirta); the first of eight in this new series.
These new guides emphasise the importance of managing weeds for biodiversity
outcomes. For example, when removing weeds from native vegetation it is
important to minimise opportunities for future weed invasions.
This is something of which bush regenerators are acutely aware as they
painstakingly target weeds while minimising soil disturbance and damage to
Three key areas of preparation are emphasised:
1. know the weed and its biology
2. know the range of methods for removing it
3. know the site including the condition of the native vegetation.
