Integrated approach to weed management
The Shire of Augusta Margaret River implements an integrated weed management approach for the control of weeds around the shire that pose a risk to biodiversity, infrastructure, or public safety. This involves using a combination of several weed management techniques, such:
- Physical control
- Chemical control
- Biological control.
The advantage of using an integrated weed management approach is that there is flexibility in determining appropriate control strategies for different areas by considering economical, ecological, and human health factors.
This Integrated Weed Management Plan provides guidance on the effective and efficient control of weeds on Shire-managed land based on an integrated approach using a range of appropriate prevention and control methods.
