Weed profile: Cane needle grass
Cane needle grass
Cane needle grass is drought tolerant and forms dense, competitive infestations. It is closely related to serrated tussock which costs southeastern Australia’s grazing industries more than $40 million annually in control expenditure and lost production. Several species of Nassella have proven difficult to control and have continued to spread since their introduction into Australia, and are now environmental and agricultural weeds.
