Weeds Research, Development and Extension Strategy (2016 – 2021)

This strategy establishes a solid foundation for a collaborative weed RD&E approach across NSW and nationally. Its implementation will reduce the impacts of weeds resulting in more profitable agricultural production, lower costs of control for land managers, and sustained biodiversity.

The broad themes for Weed RD&E in NSW DPI are to manage weed risks by:

  • Prevention and detection of new incursions of weeds
  • Mitigating adverse impacts of established weeds;
  • Adoption of best practice and community engagement in relation to weeds.
