Noxious weed management
The control of noxious weeds (including African Lovegrass) on road reserves and public lands including Farmers Creek is aimed at improving the amenity and bio security of public lands through noxious weed control. This will improve the quality of public lands adjacent and downstream of affected areas. The control of noxious weeds has a lasting positive economic impact for the community and the region.
