The long awaited update to the 2008 Serrated Tussock Best Practice Management Guide is complete and is available for print, download or mailout to interested parties, groups or organisations. The original 8 page brochure was a summary of the 128 page management brochure, which featured a DVD and case studies and is the bible for serrated tussock management.

The new brochure update features improved images, updates to the information on serrated tussock distribution and further imformation relevant to management techniques with proven success. The previous brochure was a national production, through the Weeds of National Signficance (WONs) project, whereas the newly updated brochure was funded through the VSTWP and is more relevant to Victoria.

VSTWP Executive Officer Martin Deering said “the updated Best Practice Management Guide is the one stop shop for extension material for serrated tussock management and control. It has informaiton on how to identify serrated tussock, how to control it and when to control it, as well as how to prevent it spreading to your property”.

Serrated tussock is a hardy and aggressive grassy weed which is found throughout temperate regions of Victorian and New South Wales.  Serrated tussock has a devastating impact on the biodiversity of native grasslands and can drastically reduce the carrying capacity of farmland.
