On Nov 11, 2015, an interactive field day and discussion group was held at 'Oak Hill', near Culcairn, in the NSW south-east Riverina, to dissiminate the latest research and management options to farmers for Silverleaf Nightshade control. This workshop was organised by Raylene Brown from Holbrook Landcare Network (HLN), in conjunction with Murrumbidgee Landcare Inc. (MLi).

Hanwen Wu from NSW DPI along with Phil Bowden and Karen Herbert from MLi andcare spoke and demonstrated the Weed seeker technology which has been estimated by growers to save 70% on the cost of herbicides.

A lengthy discussion ensued amongst researchers, HLN staff, participating landowners and local government weeds officers. Our thanks to Nick Taylor for hosting this event.
