“Farmers and other regional property owners will be aware of the importance of undertaking weed control. This is something we have to stay on top of, we undertake a regular program of works every year to assist with controlling weeds such as Patterson’s Curse, Horehound, Nightshade and Blackberry ,” said Mr McKenzie.

“Keeping the weeds under control assists with preserving our native vegetation and also nearby crops,” said Mr McKenzie.
