Launch of African Lovegrass report

African Lovegrass is a fast spreading weed that is invading much of Australia. It is arguably the most invasive weed in the capital region and is found in all areas – suburban gardens, lawns, urban parks, road verges, farms and nature parks.

The Southern ACT Catchment Group as part of its project ‘Regional education on African Lovegrass - an integrated approach’ is launching a report on the distribution and abundance of African Lovegrass in the ACT. The report will be launched by Shane Rattenbury (MLA).

Don't love this grass!

African Lovegrass has been increasingly encroaching upon farmland, bushland, and roadsides throughout the ACT and southern NSW over the past three decades. South Australia and Victoria are similarly affected. There have been various studies and meetings to discuss the problem. On a local level African Lovegrass is included in the Australian Capital Territory’s Environmental Weed Control Operations Plan, but it continues to spread, particularly through the southern suburbs.
