Open and well-drained habitat, coastal areas, sand dunes, riverbeds, wasteland, cliffs.
Seeds dispersed by explosive dehiscence, water, soil movement.
Alters dune plant community composition and reduces native plant abundances. Nitrogen fixer. May alter nutrient cycling and facilitate establishment and seed set of exotic plants.
Follow up treated areas 3 times per year. Encourage natural regeneration of native plants or replant treated areas where possible after 2-3 treatments to establish dense ground cover and minimise reinvasion.
CAUTION: When using any herbicide or pesticide please read the label thoroughly to ensure that all instructions and safety requirements are followed.
