Biosecurity and Weeds

The broad definition of a weed is a plant growing outside its natural environment that has some sort of adverse impact. These impacts range from reducing biodiversity and harbouring pests and diseases, to threatening the health and wellbeing of humans and animals.

By learning about your responsibility for weeds, how to identify them, and how to manage them, you can help reduce their impact on the agricultural and environmental assets across our region and help preserve our magnificent landscape for future generations.
