Measures can be taken to reduce the spread of serrated tussock seed by stock, internally and externally. Limit movement of stock from infested areas to clean areas and remove stock from infested paddocks before serrated tussock goes to seed. Quarantine stock in holding paddocks for at least 14 days if they are suspected of being contaminated with seed.
