These are dried and then sent off site to be used as fertiliser.
What will be gamba grass policy for the site?
Our policy is to completely eradicate gamba grass from the site, although we appreciate the difficulties in achieving this.

Lucerne and other suitable grasses. Our farm manager is putting together a program for growing this on site. We may also be able to make this available to other AACo properties.
Can the community be informed when aerial weed spraying is being carried out?
We are mindful that the community would like to be informed about aerial weed spraying and will let the public know beforehand when we are conducting spraying through our community updates. Be aware that there are other properties in the area that also conduct weed spraying and we are not in a position to let the public know about them.
