Working with Weeds
Sat. 22 October 2016, 9:00 am – 3:45 pm AEDT
Do you want to learn new ways to think about weeds? Are they a problem? How can you use your knowledge of weeds to boost farm productivity and save time? Join local grazier and consultant Alison Elvin from NaturalCapital to find out what story weeds can tell about your land and the best options for managing them.
Alison and representatives from South East Local Land Services and ACT Rural Services will explore what is a weed, what conditions and land use may have contributed to the problem, identification of key weed species, integrated weed management, weed biosecurity and emerging weed target species. There will be a paddock walk and ‘hands on’ session in the afternoon and an opportunity for landholders to develop their own weed management plan for the future.
This field day is not suitable for children and please leave your dogs at home.
