Serrated Tussock Working Party
THE Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party (VSTWP) would like to invite everyone to their Facebook page, which was launched recently.
Farmers can keep updated with the latest news, events, research, treatment information and extension material regarding the declared noxious weed Serrated Tussock (nassella trichotoma).
They also have detailed information on identification, best practice management and treatment options on their website at: www. serratedtussock.com.
Serrated Tussock is a type of perennial tufted grass, native in Argentina, Uruguay, Chile and Peru.
It is on the list of Weeds of National Significance in Australia, reducing the productivity of pasture, invading native grasslands and creating a fire hazard.
It is unpalatable to stock and can rapidly dominate landscapes.
