FIREWEED MANAGEMENT FIELD DAY

RAVENSBOURNE
& DISTRICT LANDCARE GROUP

Identification and control of fireweed infestations


pest animals

Whats it all about?


Fireweed some native species and the very
invasive and toxic Madagascan species have
been flowering and seeding prolifically in South
East Queensland this spring. While most
infestations in Ravensbourne appear to be
native species, some specimens of the
Madagascan one may have been found.
Agronomist Andrew Somervaille, together with
Jim OSullivan from TRC and Pedro Hodgson
from Biosecurity Queensland will lead
discussion about identifying and managing the
weed. We hope to be able to see the results of
a herbicide trial.
