Weed Risk Assessments

The potential weed risk of plants researched by Future Farm Industries CRC researchers is assessed using a weed risk protocol which was developed by the CRC's Weed and Genetic Risk project team. From the tabel below, weed risk analyses and scores and genetic risk analyses can be downloaded for a range of plants. Genetic risk is determined using the CRC's Genetic Risk Protocol. For some species, weed management guides are also available.
