Body

Many areas within semi -arid western NSW have been adversely affected by the encroachment of woody weeds. In some areas the density of woody weeds has increased to the point where pasture growth is severely impeded in most years. A number of investigations have been undertaken into control options during the past 15 years. In 1988 the Soil Conservation Service initiated a demonstration /trial program using a blade plough as the primary woody weed control agent. Initially, trial sites were blade ploughed and monitored to determine the effectiveness of the treatment and the effects on the pasture and soils. Costs of treatment were also recorded.
