Chilean Needle Grass Information Sessions with Barry Oswald
Chilean needle grass (Nassella neesiana) is a major threat to biodiversity and can have a devastating impact on agriculture injuring livestock and contaminating crops and hay. Chilean needle grass is a ‘Restricted’ noxious weed in Victoria which means the plant, or any product contaminated with the seed, cannot be traded or transported. Native to South America, Chilean needle grass is a vigorous competitor in agricultural, natural and urban environments.
