Identification and early intervention are the key principles to preventing the spread of weeds and pests.
Weeds can threaten crops, horticulture and pasture production, be poisonous and cause injury to stock and lessen the value of agricultural produces such as grain, hay and wool. Weeds can also invade native plant communities and reduce plant diversity and habitat for native animals.
Pest or invasive animals can pose a serious threat to biodiversity and primary production. They contribute to the loss of native animals and can significantly disturb native vegetation.
