Weeds remain a significant threat to the health of Australian landscapes, conservation values and the productivity and profitability of agriculture. In providing its investment of $20 million in the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions (the Centre), the Federal Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources requested the Centre to develop a 10-year Investment Plan for Weed Research, Development and Extension that aims to improve weed management in Australia. While the Investment Plan’s main purpose will be to establish a ten-year national investment framework for weed R,D&E, the consultancy process should also act to guide shorter-term Centre investment of around $1 million over 2018-19 to 2021-22.
The project received funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment
