Event description

Description

Join us for an informative session with Dr Andrew Mcconnachie (Senior Research Scientist in the Weeds Research Unity, NSW DPI) as he talks about weed biocontrol option available in the central tablelands.

In a morning of presentations we will be exploring: current research and local biocontrol agents available; how best to breed up or assist in the spread of biocontrol agents and how to monitor for your local biocontrol agents in the field.

In the afternoon you will be welcome to join us for a trip out to Sunny Corner to put our biological control agents spotting into practice. Be on the list to receive a copy of the soon to be released :NSW Weed Biocontrol Handbook". This workshop will be valuable learning for everyone from council weed officers to landholders or anyone interested in local weed biocontrol options in the central tablelands.
