The free Weed Control app provides essential information about the control of weeds declared in South Australia under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004.
The app includes:
- colour photographs and descriptions of the 139 declared plants to aid identification
- chemical and non-chemical control treatments for these weeds
- provisions of the Act applying to the weeds in their NRM region
- links to state policies and further information on each declared plant
- information on the safe use of herbicides.
The app presents information from the current edition of the Weed Control Handbook for Declared Plants in South Australia (). The app will be updated as chemical uses and plant declarations change.
App users can also:
- record the location of weeds via their phone GPS
- keep notes and a log of control activities
- phone or email regional resource officers to report weeds
- include photos in weed notifications and requests for advice.
The SA Weed Control app is produced by Biosecurity SA - Invasive Species Unit in partnership with the eight Natural Resource Management regions.
