NEW REPORT: Weedy Pasture Plants for Salinity Control: Sowing the Seeds of Destruction

The Invasive Species Council has released a report (http://www.invasives.org.au/page.php?nameIdentifier=weedypastureplantsforsalinitycontrol) detailing the environmental risks posed by invasive pasture plants being used for salinity control in southern Australia.

It also warns that one of those invasive pasture plants, Tall Wheat Grass (Lophopyrum ponticum), could become one of Victoria’s worst weeds and has the potential to invade more than half the state.”
