Weed Identification

Weed Identification

Weeds are often a severe problem on Tropical Queensland re-vegetation sites. Grasses and vines can rapidly swamp our re-vegetation efforts and must be constantly managed. Mulgrave Landcare needs to understand our weeds, and recognise them on sight, then we can find the best way to manage the issue at each site. Mulgrave Landcare uses a combination of chemical, manual and mechanical controls, depending on the site requirements.

Browse some of the weeds in the local area on the Queensland Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry website:
