This is a collaborative project by Murrumbidgee Landcare and NSW Primary Industries, funded by Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Inoovation, targeting Silverleaf Nightshade control on a National scale.
Paul has seen some promising results to the 'dual action' approach implemented in 2014 to control silvernight nightshade on his 75-hectare irrigation block, near Leeton in the MIA. Click on the attached file to read more.
With spring almost upon us, we'd like to know of any farmer/landcare groups that are interested in learning more about quality management techniques for tackling silverleaf nightshade in their area.
The silverleaf nightshade team offer half day on-farm workshops that feature up to date research on management of this common summer growing weed as well as answering questions from participants about the best control options for the local area. The results from 366 on-farm trials established across Vic, NSW, SA & WA can also be presented.
Enjoy bushwalking around lovely Cocoparra National Park whilst helping gather important information that will be used to build a picture of the location, types and number of tree hollows as well as the wildlife using hollows. Learn how to take measurements of hollow-bearing trees, report your observations and learn skills that can be used in your local neighbourhood.
Joe and his family have owned their family property in the Southern NSW since 1903. Controlling silverleaf nightshade is an ongoing part of the summer season's farm management. Read more by clicking on the link below.
