Parthenium weed is a Weed of National Significance. It currently infests more than eight million hectares in central Queensland and has the potential to infest much of the eastern half of New South Wales (see NSW WeedWise for information about parthenium weed).
Parthenium weed is a vigorous coloniser of bare ground, denuded pastures and disturbed sites. The weed is a fast growing annual with prolific seed production. Once established, it quickly builds a huge seed bank in the soil that makes eradication difficult and expensive.
NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) led the development of the NSW Parthenium strategy which details strategic direction for the next five years.
