African Lovegrass is moving into the Yass district - a tussocky noxious weed that can aggressively invade vast areas of productive farm, residential and public land. Learn how to distinguish African Lovegrass from native lovegrass.

Biosecurity issues such as the spread of African Lovegrass seeds on roadsides will also be covered.
