Alexandrina Sustainable Agricultural Round Table (ASART) are hosting an Agricultural Weeds Workshop.

This workshop is an opportunity for local land managers to provide input on agricultural weed prioritisation within the Alexandrina Council region.  The workshop will be facilitated by Kerri Muller of Kerri Muller NRM and include presentations from:

  • Alexandrina Council
  • Victor Harbor Agribusiness Reference Group
  • Natural Resources SA Murray Darling Basin

The presentations will be followed by a weed mapping workshop.  Key questions will include:

  • What is the per hectare cost of weed control on your property?
  • What impacts do weeds have on your agricultural land?
  • What are your top priorities for agricultural weed management i.e. priority areas and species?
  • For your top priority weed or target area, what types of activities would a successful control program need to include?
  • What knowledge gaps do we need to fill?

If you have any questions please contact Council's  Manager Planning and Development, Sally Roberts, on 8555 7000.
