Burning questions answered at gamba grass information day

An issue that’s getting a lot of attention at the moment is how to manage gamba grass in the Katherine region.

Last month Edith Farms Volunteer Bushfire Brigade, with support from the Territory’s Weeds Branch and BushfiresNT put on an event at Charles Darwin University which saw experts in the field focus on the risks of not managing the weed and how everyone can work together to manage its spread.

More than 50 people attended the event and many of the attendees got a free ride in a helicopter to see where gamba grass was in the region, especially on the individuals’ properties.

If you want more information on how you can manage gamba, contact the Weed Management Branch on 08 8999 4567 or visit the Northern Territory Government website.
