A new regional committee established by North Coast Local Land Services to coordinate the management of weeds in the region, has met for the first time. The North Coast Regional Weed Committee, established as part of a new approach to weed management. The committee will take a cross tenure approach to the planning and coordination of weed management activities, which play an integral part in an overall state weed management framework.

Weed control at your fingertips – NSW WeedWise


The power to control weeds is at the touch of a button, with a new smartphone app that provides key, up-to-the-minute information to help reduce the impact of weeds in New South Wales.  The NSW WeedWise app is the first of its kind, profiling more than 300 noxious and environmental weeds affecting or threatening New South Wales.

The app combines weed profiles and control information as well as the legal requirements under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993 in one easy-to-access location.  Users can search or browse weeds on the app and view weed profiles.     


Each weed profile contains a physical description of the weed, an image gallery and detailed information about its impacts, where it occurs, how it spreads and its preferred habitat.  Latest control options are described for each weed and the herbicides registered for its control are listed, including application rates and techniques.

Landholders can also directly report sightings of high priority weeds via email or SMS and as it is important to know that if a weed is declared in NSW under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993, users can see what legal requirements exist in their own local area, and elsewhere in the state.


The free app, available on iPhone and Android devices is a fantastic way to involve landowners and home gardeners in our war on weeds. The app was developed by Department of Primary Industries in conjunction with Reading Room Australia Pty Ltd. It was supported with funding from the NSW Weeds Action Program and Murray Local Land Services.
