Australian Weeds Strategy
Weeds are one of the most serious threats to Australia's environment and agricultural production.
Almost all of Australia's native vegetation has been, or could be, affected by weeds. A large percentage of weed species were originally imported for use as garden ornamentals. Improvements to Australia’s biosecurity arrangements have significantly reduced this risk.
The Australian Weeds Strategy was developed in 2007 to help combat weeds and provide national guidance on best practice weed management.
The Australian Weeds Strategy 2017-2027 has been revised to reflect changes in weed management and is available for download online.
