Pasture or next environmental weed

The latest Decision Point has an interesting article, Perversity in the pasture, about the need to consider what we plant as pasture species including a great Youtube clip by Don Driscoll which is a novel way to sound a warning about some pasture species turning into our next environmental weeds.

The article ties in nicely as a reminder to read with caution a link to Pastures Australia, fact sheet index, in the latest Landcare News in Corangamite, if you feel inspired to choose a new pasture species.  A huge number of pasture species are listed some of which when on the wrong side of the fence are costing us big money to control.
