Fight back against plant pests

Do you want to keep pest weeds off your property?

NZ Landcare Trust, in association with Beef + Lamb New Zealand, are holding a field day on Friday 4 December at the Awatere Community Hall in Seddon.

Pitched at farmers wanting to protect their land from biosecurity risks, the programme will focus on controlling Chilean Needle Grass (CNG), Nassella Tussock (NT) and wilding pines.

Learn the findings of the EQ Biosecurity Project including the outcome of on-farm drilling and over-sowing trials on CNG and NT paddocks, chemical topping of CNG and the CNG risk from cattle. There will also be a hands on chance to learn how to identify CNG and the South Marlborough Landscape Restoration Trust will give a wilding pine control update.
