Although Flora Victoria is heavily involved in harvesting and sowing native grass seed, a large proportion of our work involves the management of weeds in remnant grasslands. Flora Victoria has over ten years of experience managing weeds in grassland remnants and our methods of weed control have become an important tool in the restoration of some significant grasslands that are being invaded by weeds like Phalaris aquatica, a weed considered by many as almost impossible to eradicate without causing severe off target damage. Our experience managing weeds in seed production areas has also greatly enhanced our weed control capabilities in remnant grasslands and some of our methods are outlined below.
Effective weed control in remnant grassland is extremely demanding and requires skill and experience. If you see overspray or any off target damage to vegetation you are managing, seriously consider changing your contractor as soon as possible.
