What’s grey and crunchy and looks worse for wear?
African Lovegrass after being burned then chemically treated!!
Narayen Station, west of Mundubbera and part of the Australian Agricultural College, has been working with the North Burnett Regional Council to trial a few ways to control the dreaded pasture weed, African Lovegrass. Once introduced to Australia as a soil stability pasture, it has since become a pest to pastoralists in the western Burnett areas particularly (and across the Burnett).
Now, almost 18 months since treatment, come and join us for a FIELD DAY at Narayen on Saturday October 31st, 2009 from 9.30am till 2.30 with BBQ lunch provided. Bring sturdy shoes and a hat and water.
If you’d rather not drive, a bus will be leaving from outside Mundubbera Community Development Centre (Stuart Russell St) at 8.30am. RSVP to Leigh-Anne at council on 1300 696 272. See Field Day information.
