Look for weeds

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

WITH the drought af­fect­ing hay pro­duc­tion, farm­ers have been forced to source fod­der and feed from fur­ther away, and the South­ern Downs Re­gional Coun­cil is con­cerned it could lead to new weeds be­ing in­tro­duced into the lo­cal ecosys­tem. In a state­ment the coun­cil said it ap­pre­ci­ates all the ef­forts from res­i­dents, char­i­ties and busi­nesses be­hind the hay de­liv­er­ies to our pri­mary pro­duc­ers, but re­minds any­one who ac­cepts hay to be mind­ful of po­ten­tial weed con­tam­i­nants. Be­fore ac­cept­ing hay from out­side the re­gion, ask where the hay came from and what types of weeds may be present.
