17 Mimosa Management Comments were sought on the draft Weed Management Plan for Mimosa (Mimosa pigra) until Friday 10 September 2010. The plan has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the Weeds Management Act and defines the objectives to be achieved by land holders and land managers in relation to mimosa, and the minimum actions needed to achieve these outcomes. The release of this plan follows the recently exhibited Public Consultation Draft Weed Management Plan for Bellyache Bush (Jatropha gossypiifolia) which closed on 15 July 2010. Weed Management Plans establish the legislative requirements of land managers in relation to weed control and describe the required management actions as they relate to declaration zones for that particular species. Generally speaking, declaration zones reflect the varying feasibility of control between the management and eradication areas. Areas which have isolated and low density infestations are classified as the Class A/C (Eradication) Zone. Eradication in these areas is considered possible and highly desirable. Widely distributed and dense infestations are identified as the Class B/C (Management) Zone. In the Class B/C Zone eradication is not considered technically or economically feasible at this time. Management recommendations for this zone focus on containing existing infestations and preventing any further spread. All declared weeds in the NT are considered to be Class C. This recognises the need to prevent new introductions. For more information on weed management plans contact the Weed Management Branch or go to www.nt.gov.au/consult to see community consultation status of weed management plans.
