Research

African Lovegrass Survey

African Lovegrass (ALG) is a highly invasive environmental and agricultural weed in the region.

Living with Lovegrass

Lovegrass mixRedgrass African lovegrass mix.

‘Living with Lovegrass’ a forum designed around learning from each other on how to manage African Lovegrass was held at the Namadgi Visitor Centre on Saturday 22nd May. Around sixty people attended the forum and it was interesting to hear the range of views expressed about lovegrass. Some graziers expressed the view that lovegrass is here, cattle can use it, so perhaps we are better off devoting resources to Serrated Tussock. Others thought that lovegrass is potentially our worst environmental and agricultural weed species. Whatever the view there is no denying African lovegrass is a highly persistent, summer growing, perennial grass weed that is invading rural properties, urban parklands and roadsides and nature reserves across our region.

Peri-Urban Weed Management Study

Rural lifestyle landowners occupy peri-urban areas—the non-urban landscape close to urban or regional centres. These landowners do not derive their living directly from their properties as they have chosen these locations essentially for lifestyle purposes. Because the rural lifestyle is increasingly popular, the landowners are key stakeholders in future landscape management.
