Lobed Needle Grass eradication

Lobed needle grass poses a significant threat to the livelihood of our farmers.

Lobed needle grass is classed as a State prohibited weed under law meaning that it is considered to be among the highest category of noxious weeds in our State but one which is still capable of being eradicated.

Since 2012 there has been no eradication program despite it being classed as a State prohibited weed.

Commitment sought

  • Urgent reinstatement of the lobed needle grass eradication program.

Alternatively:

  • $160,000 per annum for the City of Whittlesea to undertake eradication programs with local landowners.
