What is Your Plan? The ongoing issues with bushfires in NSW and Queensland have brought about the tragic loss of hundreds of buildings including homes, sheds and outbuildings. Sadly, there has been loss of human life and widespread loss of stock and wildlife as the fires move though both private and public lands.

Farmers, it’s time to spray your Silverleaf Nightshade

Hilltops Council Biosecurity Officers Tom Pickering and Ben Mott are urging farmers and landholders to be on the lookout for Silverleaf Nightshade. After the recent summer showers Silverleaf Nighshade will be on the move. Silverleaf nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium) is a weed that reduces production in crop and pasture enterprises throughout the Australian wheat-sheep zone. It is a long-lived perennial plant with very deep, resilient roots. It grows during spring and summer and uses valuable moisture and nutrients needed for following crops and pastures. Crop yields can be reduced by 50 to 70% by dense infestations. Spread is relatively slow but once established it is extremely difficult to eradicate. Established dense infestations are an ongoing annual burden on productivity and costs, and there are no suitable effective herbicide treatments that will kill dense infestations quickly.

Our thoughts and prayers are still very much with those who have been affected by the recent bushfires. As many of you know, I have initiated a bushfire relief fund to assist those who have been impacted and to support the recovery of the communities affected. The recovery process is going to be long and every dollar will count toward helping the communities affected get back on their feet.
