To help protect our environment:
Wetlands, mangroves, salt marshes, riparian margins, dunes, cliffs, disturbed sites, roadsides, pasture, wasteland, urban areas.
Seeds are dispersed by birds, mammals and water. Vegetative spread from suckering. Human-mediated dispersal through deliberate planting.
Displaces native vegetation. Allelopathic, inhibiting growth and abundance of nearby native 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.
