This is the time of year when many of the perennial grass weeds become obvious – mostly because they are unpalatable and left behind by stock, which is why they can get the competitive advantage. These are the grasses that we are concerned about for Greater Hume and Snowy Shires. They are threats to production and the environment in our landscape, although may not be delared noxious. Included are the links to the NSW DPI information about each species – ID and control strategies.
The best defense in production landscapes is a healthy, competitive pasture.
