Farmers of the Far South Coast have a challenging time identifying the wide variety of plants they have in their pastures. This presents a number of challenges in managing a farm, such as knowing which plants are beneficial to your enterprise and which aren’t.

This workshop will be a practical paddock-based exercise focusing on:

  • introduced and native pasture plants and their relative value
  • weeds and weeds to watch for and how to manage them

Jackie Miles (local botanist), Council weeds staff and Local Land Services staff will be in attendance to deliver the workshop.  The DPI publications, ‘Grasses of Coastal NSW’ and ‘Legumes and Herbs of Coastal NSW’ will be available at a subsidised price.
