Protecting our environment: 2018 Gamba Action Program launched

The NT Government is continuing its fight against Gamba grass by today launching the 2018 Gamba Action Program.

As most Top End landholders already know, Gamba grass is a highly invasive weed that creates high fuel loads and burns easily – putting lives, property and the environment at risk. That is why together, we need to do everything we can to control it.

The Gamba Action Program means landholders can collect free herbicide and loan equipment to manage Gamba on their property.

Landholders can contact the Weed Management Branch for spray equipment loans, and can obtain free limited herbicide at:

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources can also help landholders plan their approach to controlling and managing Gamba on their property so their efforts arent wasted. Landholders can call 8999 4567 f
