FIGHT VELVETLEAF

The Invercargill Eye - - FRONT PAGE -

South­land landown­ers have been asked to con­tinue to be proac­tive in the fight against the pest weed velvetleaf, as the next phase of the re­sponse gets un­der­way. En­vi­ron­ment South­land di­rec­tor of op­er­a­tions Jonathan Streat said 32 farms were ini­tially iden­ti­fied as high pri­or­ity. A con­trac­tor has met with landown­ers to de­velop weed man­age­ment plans tai­lored to their in­di­vid­ual prop­er­ties. Farm­ers who find any sus­pected velvetleaf plants should con­tact MPI on 0800 80 99 66.
