Management and control of serrated tussock
Serrated tussock control can be complex but is essential to ensure farm productivity and environmental values are not lost.
Integrated weed management using combinations of chemical, mechanical, physical and cultural techniques are critical for long term control of serrated tussock.
Eradication and control of serrated tussock must focus on the eradication of adult plants and re-established seedlings. Management activities should be well planned with the aim of stopping plants setting seed with large infestations treated in manageable parcels. Regular monitoring and follow up over serveral years is essential.
More detailed information on the management and control of serrated tussock can be found on the NSW DPI website.
Strategies for control
It is critical to prevent the introduction and establishment of serrated tussock. Treat individual plants and small infestation before they spread.
