Weed Detection Identification on Farms in Australia - A Guide for Landholders.
What weeds are of most concern to farmers?
Which weeds have the greatest impact on individual farms depends on a
range of factors including location (region and State or Territory), seasonal
conditions, time of year, and type of farm operation.
However, our survey of landholders, with an equivalent number of
respondents (over 80) from each State, and over 40 respondents from the
Northern Territory, showed that the individual weeds of most concern to
landholders nationally are thistles, followed by Paterson?s curse, Bathurst
burr and blackberry. More general weed groups of most concern are
perennial and annual broadleaf weeds, followed by perennial grasses and
Weeds-types of Most Concern in Reverse Order:
Other annual grasses
Other annual broadleaf weeds
Other perennial broadleaf weeds
