Body

Annual barley grass (Hordeum leporinum) causes significant production, management and health problems for the sheep industry. Pasture composition nas changed as this grass has invaded large areas of the Riverina in NSW. The yearly cost of barley grass to the wool industry has been put at $96 million (1). Treating small areas with herbicide to control seed set, and to provide sufficient pasture during the period seed could infest susceptible sheep will allow better management of barley grass seed problems.
