This manual provides practical information to help primary producers manage weedy Sporobolus grasses (WSG) - a group of weeds that includes giant rat's tail grass and giant Parramatta grass.
The manual takes a strategic approach to weed management. A variety of common weed 'situations' are examined, and a 'best bet' strategy presented for each. These 'best bet' strategies are based on the latest research, and focus on achieving effective weed control in a cost -efficient way. Weed management is tackled in an integrated way. Chemical control is combined with best practice land management techniques to effectively control current infestations and prevent the spread of weeds to 'clean' country. The information presented in this manual is based on the outcomes of the latest research. Although the information is specific to WSG, the management and control principles presented can be applied to almost all invasive weeds.
