Invasive cacti are a major threat to pastoral production and biodiversity in the rangelands, hindering movement of livestock and native animals and in some cases leading to the death of birds, bats, reptiles and even large macropods. Cacti have the potential to spread through the entire rangelands of Australia, and many cacti species have been declared Weeds of National Significance. If left uncontrolled, infestations can quickly grow to impenetrable thickets, removing land from pastoral production.
This project aims to assist land managers eradicate invasive cacti by supplying herbicide to successful applicants.
