The cost of weeds to Australian agriculture now exceeds $4 billion per year. Prevention and early intervention are the most cost-effective means of dealing with potential, new and emerging weeds in Queensland. The Weed Spotters’ Network Queensland aims to find, identify and document those new occurrences of potential weeds at an early stage so that preventative actions can be taken. Upcoming Weed Spotter training will be held in:
- Brisbane: Wednesday 16 March, 10 am–12pm
- Emerald: Wednesday 6 April, 10 am–12 pm
