African Lovegrass, Chilean Needle Grass and Coolatai Grass are a serious threat that, if left uncontrolled, will quickly outcompete native vegetation - especially in grasslands - dominate pasture, remove habitat for native species and significantly reduce carrying capacity.

The Fullerton Hadley Landcare Group and the CSIRO are hosting a workshop to help landowners understand the potentially serious impacts of these grasses as well as discuss management and control options. These weeds are highly invasive and extremely difficult to control. The workshop will help landowners and managers both recognise and identify these species and provide practical advice on how they can be controlled and managed on your property.

As an old farmer will tell you… “Some grasses you want and some grasses you don’t want”!
