Giant Rat’s Tail Grass Workshop | Yeppoon

Giant rat’s tail grass (GRT) is an aggressive weed that many central Queensland land managers struggle to control. This workshop will focus on methods and chemicals that work on CQ grazing properties. Come along and learn from two of our region’s experts, have all your GRT questions answered and start getting the most from your paddocks.

Come along and learn:

  • how to identify GRT on your property
  • what chemicals will get the best results
  • how grazing practices can stop GRT from spreading and taking over
  • what’s worked on other local properties and why
    … and loads more!
