New Centre Targets Weeds

The GRDC is investing in a major strategic initiative to establish a weeds research unit at the University of Western Australia.

The initiative will be an integral part of the Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) for Weed Management Systems. To create the unit, the GRDC will invest $2.3 million over the next five years.

The CRC is developing a series of 'Best Management Packages' from the CRC's key programs for weeds in cropping, temperature pastures and natural ecosystems. Ground Cover will be telling readers when this material becomes available later this year.
