Bathurst bur (RPMP 2018)

Bathurst bur clump in a field.

Bathurst bur is subject to a Sustained Control programme as part of the Regional Pest Management Plan 2018. It has a limited distribution and density and the long term goal is to eradicate this weed from the district.

Marlborough District Council will carry out all the control work required for this pest. Sites are visited by biosecurity staff at regular intervals to ensure all infestations are controlled before they seed, ensuring the infestations are maintained at very low levels.
