Giant Parramatta Grass
Information Session
Wandandian Progress Association Hall

Thursday July 7th
between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm

Shoalhaven Landcare invites you to an information session on Giant Parramatta Grass (GPG)

At this session, you can learn about how giant Parramatta grass grows, how other landowners are tackling this weed, and what has been successful.

Landowners have found that GPG is a difficult grass to control.
Many landowners are unclear about how and when to control it and what is the correct strategy for their situation.

PROGRAM SPEAKERS FOR THE SESSION WILL INCLUDE
Amanda Britton Agronomist Local Land Services Berry Understanding the biology of GPG – how it grows; when are the important times for action and how this knowledge helps keep it in control
Max Boyd Farmer from Yatta Park at Conjola Max has worked to control GPG on his grazing property
Greg Thompson Brogers Creek Landcare Different strategies that Kangaroo Valley farmers are using for GPG control
John Kubale Bengalee Landcare Trialling the naturally occurring biological control Nigraspora

Several fact sheets and control manuals will be available at the information session. They are also available from Shoalhaven Council at Nowra or Local Land Services at Berry.

Please RSVP to Julia Banks, Shoalhaven Landcare Coordinator at coordinator@shoalhavenlandcare.org.au Landcare logo

This project is supported through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program
