Upper Torrens landholders who attended the ‘Controlling woody weeds in a watercourse’ were given practical demonstrations and tips by local contractor, Jim Donnelly (Greenleaf Contracting) about how best to prioritise and control pest plants in a riparian zone.

Topics covered during the session: ‘Which herbicide?’, ‘When to do the work? and ‘Which control method?’

A great discussion followed with landholders sharing their own experiences amongst the group. In addition, Caroline Dorr, Water Services Officer (DEW) was able to share some big picture information about water management in the catchment and in addition provided a few facts about the value of environmental flows and the increase in native fish present in our systems.

If you missed the session and would like some information about controlling weeds in your watercourse, please don’t hesitate to contact the URTLG
