How to Control:
- Dig out small patches. Dispose of rhizomes and seed heads at a refuse transfer station, burn or bury deeply.
- Weed wipe, spring-autumn (1g metsulfuron + 150ml glyphosate + 10ml penetrant/1L water).
- Spray (spring-autumn): (3g metsulfuron + 150ml glyphosate + 10 ml penetrant /10L water).
Difficult to eradicate once established as seeds prolifically. Rhizomes resprout and seed bank reinfests bare ground. Clear roadsides, tracks & streamsides first, then move into bush. Follow up annually. Maintain weed hygiene, especially on tracks.
Caution: when using any herbicide or pesticide PLEASE READ THE LABEL THOROUGHLY to ensure that all instructions and safety requirements are followed.
