Landscape-scale control for Noogoora Burr

Control of the declared weed Noogoora Burr in the North East Pastoral district has been given a boost through Grassroots Grants, funded by the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board

Twelve properties who applied for a grant in the district will each receive 50 per cent of the cost of one aerial spray program.

The combined $37,888 program will continue work started by the Olary Weed Group a number of years ago which aims to eradicate the pest species. The most recent aerial spraying program was carried out in the district in February this year and followed the significant rain event in January. A number of properties were involved and the program was entirely self-funded.

The board’s support through Grassroot Grants aims to support the control further and wider than ever before with the inclusion of more properties working jointly to combat the declared weed.

Properties funded for control works are Weekeroo, Mooleulooloo, Yarramba, Kalkaroo, Bindarrah, Pine Creek, Mutooroo, Devenborough Downs, Wadnaminga, Oulninna, Florina and Wiawera.
