GRT WORKSHOP – how to identify and manage giant rat’s tail grass on grazing land | Nerimbera

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