I will be teaching this free workshop to help landholders manage lantana the sustainable way. Here are some details below. Registration is essential as space is limited.
This workshop will showcase a range of techniques used to control lantana on sensitive and ‘difficult’ sites including riparian areas, steep gullies and native forest edges.
WHEN & WHERE
9am – 2pm, Friday 22nd May 2015
Jilliby (Address provided on registration)
Lunch and morning tea provided
Please wear covered shoes and bring your hat, sunscreen and rain jacket.
An integrated approach to lantana management will be demonstrated including the selection of control techniques appropriate for each site and post-removal maintenance for successful suppression of regrowth. Topics covered will include:
- Selection of appropriate method of control.
- Primary weeding using both manual and chemical control.
- Secondary weeding techniques – efficient management of the site post lantana removal.
- Correct disposal of removed lantana material.
The workshop aims to increase the confidence and skills of participating landholders and will enable them to evaluate each technique and its suitability for use at their own site.
Limited spaces are available. To register and for more information see details on flyer: LANTANA workshop May 22
