Environmental weed risk assessment protocol for growing non-indigenous plants in the Western Australian rangelands
Download Complete Bulletin (4.6 MB)
This bulletin is a post-border environmental weed risk assessment (WRA) protocol which is based on the Environmental WRA Protocol developed for the Future Farm Industries Co-operative Research Centre (FFI CRC), but with some changes to reflect the different environment and objectives.
The WRA protocol was developed specifically as a post-border assessment of non-indigenous species that may have agricultural value in the WA rangelands and the risk that they may become environmental weeds. Weeds can occur in many land-use systems including agriculture, horticulture and forestry; however, the focus of this protocol is on the risk that non-indigenous agricultural plants may become environmental weeds.
The environmental weed risk of a species is assessed for three regions in the pastoral zone of WA using a three-step process. A WRA can provide information for species selection and management to help achieve a balance between agricultural productivity and risk to natural environments.
