The first step in effective weed control is knowing what you are dealing with. The PHBG aims to host a Weed ID and Advice Workshops annually allowing landholders in the PHBG operational area to bring along plant samples for identification and discussion by experts.
The workshops have become very popular with private landholders as well as staff at local government offices, DBCA, Watercorp, Harvey Water and adjoining RBG’s.
The more identification skills there are in the community the more effective weed control activities will be as control can be directed at the most effective times according to seasonal or physiological factors.
