Weeds have the potential to destroy or seriously degrade areas of environmental significance and slash the returns from all agricultural industries.

If not managed properly, they can have a serious impact on the region’s scenic beauty, industry, employment and recreation.

The authority responsible for combatting the spread of noxious weeds in the Kyogle Council area is Rous County Council.
