Weeds are one of Australia’s most persistent agricultural and environmental challenges. The mobility of weeds, biological controls and herbicide resistance, means that weed management is a landscape-scale problem that requires community-wide solutions.

The need for weed management to work effectively across property and institutional boundaries, means that an in-depth understanding of the attitudes, practices and relationships of various actors involved in weed management is needed.
