North East & Goulburn Murray Farmer - - PASTURE & FERTILISER -

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. ser­rat­ed­tus­

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.
