DANGEROUS WEED FOUND ON THE COAST

PARTHENIUM weed has recently been found in a Ravensdale chicken yard on the Central Coast. The weed causes health problems in humans and livestock, reduces carrying capacity of farmland, and contaminates grain. Central Coast Council Unit Manager of Environmental Management, Luke Sulkowski said that although the weed is uncommon in NSW, we need to be vigilant. NSW DPI State Priority Weeds coordinator, Nicola Dixon said with 20 infestations this year, NSW has had the highest number of parthenium incursions since 1999.
