Eco Goats Qld

David Low / Australia1860 / July 2, 2014 / 3:09:36 PM EST / 0 Comments
Eco Goats Qld are a small vegetation management company committed to sustainability, enhancing our valuable natural resources and recognising the importance of environmental and sustainable practices within an evolving marketplace. Eco Goats Qld has an innovative approach to land management using (small ruminants) goats. We facilitate habitat restoration in riparian and other ecologically sensitive areas, managing firebreaks and fuel loads for bushfire management. Goats love to browse both declared and environmental weeds. We provide alternatives to mowing, slashing, burning, use of harmful chemicals and labour by using effective alternative methods. Site restoration using grazing entails two phases. The first is to suppress undesirable plants and restore a desired plant community. The second is to maintain that desirable community indefinitely. These two phases use different grazing approaches, take different lengths of time, have different costs per acre, and, in some cases, may even use different species or breeds of livestock. | Website | Facebook | Contact |

Sydney Weeds Committees

David Low / Australia1740 / October 5, 2012 / 7:20:11 AM EST / 0 Comments
Sydney Weeds Committees are an association of government and non government agencies and practitioners working together to improve weed management across all land tenures in the Sydney Region and Blue Mountains Region. We aim to co-ordinate weed control actions and resources to prevent further spread of weeds, and to protect the most important assets that we have – our endangered ecosystems, waterways, agricultural land and critical habitat corridors. Our specific objectives are: 1) To prioritise and promote weed management issues across the four sub-regions; 2) To support local councils (local control authorities) to implement their responsibilities under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993; 3) To co-ordinate the implementation, allocation and reporting of the Sydney Region Weed Action Project; and 4) To secure funding from other sources for weed management. | Website | Contact |

The Byron Environment Centre (BEC)

Zheljana Peric / Australia839 / March 9, 2012 / 12:30:50 PM EST / 0 Comments
The Byron Environment Centre (BEC) is an incorporated body that has continuously operated as environmental information and resource provider in Byron Shire since 1989. It serves as a contact point and meeting place and gives technical and campaign support to other groups in the area. Because of Byron's natural beauty, the region is under constant threat from developers and other commercial interests. The continuing presence of the BEC ensures that the environmental values of the area are not forgotten. For example we are trustees of a segment of the Cumbebin Wetland Sanctuary just behind the Byron Market site. Rehabilitating and caring for this wetland remnant is one of the highlights of being involved with the BEC. Chemical free weed control at Cumbebin Wetland. | Website | Contact |

Aquatic Plant Reproduction

Zheljana Peric / AquaticHome10 / January 28, 2013 / 10:45:30 AM EST / 0 Comments
Once you have identified the aquatic plant species, knowledge of its reproductive mechanisms will also assist with determining the best management technique.

Identification of the Plant

Zheljana Peric / AquaticHome7 / January 28, 2013 / 10:41:34 AM EST / 0 Comments
To select the most appropriate management option, it is essential that the plant is correctly identified. In most situations, several species of aquatic plants are present. If one problem species is removed this might lead to the proliferation of other less desirable species.

Managing aquatic weeds

Zheljana Peric / AquaticHome5 / January 28, 2013 / 10:39:19 AM EST / 0 Comments
A successful weed control program depends on the resources available, the weeds present and the ability to carry out effective control methods. The decision-making process, with regard to managing aquatic weeds, needs to follow a number of steps.

Beneficial Roles of Aquatic Weeds

Zheljana Peric / AquaticHome3 / January 28, 2013 / 10:35:19 AM EST / 0 Comments
Some aquatic plants fulfil many beneficial functions and play a vital role in aquatic environments. Removal of these plants may result in destroying water quality and habitat with no real benefit.

Aquatic Weed Management in Waterways and Dams

David Low / AquaticHome1 / January 24, 2013 / 8:05:18 PM EST / 0 Comments
Aquatic plants serve a variety of uses in a water system, some of which are vital to the overall health of the aquatic environment. There are numerous aquatic plants that grow in farm dams, streams and waterways and fortunately most are rarely a problem. However, when water becomes rich in nutrients aquatic plants can grow vigorously to a point where they become a nuisance or are considered a weed.

An assessment of the plant’s ecology and the problem it poses are necessary before taking any action, to ensure that the most cost-effective and environmentally sound control techniques are used.

When managing the problem several factors need to be considered. These include the source of the plant, the reason it poses a problem, the use made of the waterway (e.g. dam supplying irrigation or stock water), the management options available, and ongoing costs and benefits.

It may be possible to reduce or eliminate an aquatic weed through well planned management strategies, such as diverting inflow of nutrients. The weed problem may also be seasonal and naturally fluctuate and disappear over time. Often the best option for controlling aquatic plants is to take necessary actions to prevent the problem from occurring in the first place.

David Low / Australia1870 / August 12, 2014 / 10:43:29 PM EST / 0 Comments
Herbicide use has increased exponentially over the past decade. Strong evidence is now available that indicates this may have a serious negative impact on both the environment and human and animal health. Until now, options other than the continued use of these toxic chemicals to combat our ever increasing weed problems have been very limited. In response to this situation, my business partner Andrew Morgan and I have started a new and exciting business offering non-chemical weed eradication. Our company, Weedsteamers, is dedicated to giving Victorians the opportunity to access non-chemical weed management options developed and successfully deployed in NSW and WA and the USA and Canada by our pioneering partner Weedtechnics. | Website | Facebook |

Byron Bay Chemical Free Landcare believe in healthy soils, healthy plants, healthy animals. We take an Ecological Restoration approach towards conservation rather than that of a War on Weeds. We believe that soil is more than dirt and that it is the health of the complex ecosystem of soil organisms that we need to regain and maintain as the basis for ecosystem health. We aim to promote a chemical-free Ecological Restoration approach towards conservation as an alternative to the use of toxic pesticide to remove any non-native species. To raise awareness of the dangers of toxic agricultural pesticides to human health and our environment by circulating independent research papers on the dangers of Glyphosate and other widely used chemicals. | Website | Contact |

Angove Family Winemakers
Angove Family Winemakers utilise organic and biodynamic methods which both require the complete cessation of synthetic chemicals and artificial fertilisers in the vineyard. Weeds are controlled mechanically – No herbicides. Vines receive nutrition naturally through organic compost and cover crops. Using organic and biodynamic principles the vines have naturally stronger immune systems and greater tolerance to pests, insects and disease pressure. A healthy soil with high organic matter and micro-flora provides vines with healthier root systems. Healthier vines are more balanced with resultant fruit being of unique flavour with depth and structure that truly reflect the place they are grown. The company has a ongoing program of organic conversion of its vineyards. | Website | Facebook | Contact |

Biodynamic Wine

David Low / Australia1812 / January 9, 2013 / 10:42:05 PM EST / 0 Comments
Angove Family Winemakers
Angove Family Winemakers utilise organic and biodynamic methods which both require the complete cessation of synthetic chemicals and artificial fertilisers in the vineyard. Weeds are controlled mechanically – No herbicides. Vines receive nutrition naturally through organic compost and cover crops. Using organic and biodynamic principles the vines have naturally stronger immune systems and greater tolerance to pests, insects and disease pressure. A healthy soil with high organic matter and micro-flora provides vines with healthier root systems. Healthier vines are more balanced with resultant fruit being of unique flavour with depth and structure that truly reflect the place they are grown. The company has a ongoing program of organic conversion of its vineyards. | Website | Facebook | Contact |

Greenpeace Australia Pacific

Zheljana Peric / Australia1760 / November 2, 2012 / 1:04:03 PM EST / 0 Comments
Greenpeace’s long history in the Pacific began in the early 1970s, when founder David McTaggart sailed his yacht, The Vega to Moruroa in protest against nuclear testing in Polynesia. Since the 1980s, Greenpeace has campaigned extensively in the region establishing its first office in the Pacific (outside of Aotearoa/ New Zealand) in 1994. It now has bases in Fiji, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands. In the 1980’s and 1990s the Warrior lead peace flotillas to Moruroa and relocated the population of Rongelap island who were suffering health effects from nuclear fallout. The ship's crew also protested against nuclear waste transports through the Pacific. Today, in the Pacific, Greenpeace campaigns for sustainable fishing and to protect the ocean’s biodiversity, and works with local communities to oppose illegal and destructive logging and to develop eco-forestry projects in the Solomons and PNG. Greenpeace has also worked in the Pacific to eliminate toxic pollution and to prevent harmful climate change. | Website |Contact |

Wood Shield
WoodShield timber posts have been specifically created for use in the Viticulture, Aquaculture, Equine and general Agricultural industries. Our timber fencing posts and rails have equivalent strength and rigidity combined with the protective properties, toughness and lifespan of polyethylene. WoodShield posts are a cost effective non-chemical option and many property owners have had WoodShield posts in the ground for up to five years. They are also ideal for organic growers and eco applications. The process creates a strong adhesive bond between the timber and the plastic sheath completely sealing the post, leaving no timber exposed. The post ends are protected with very thick end caps which enable the posts to be hydraulically “whacked” into the ground exactly as a standard timber post would be. | Website | Contact |

WoodShield timber posts have been specifically created for use in the Viticulture, Aquaculture, Equine and general Agricultural industries. Our timber fencing posts and rails have equivalent strength and rigidity combined with the protective properties, toughness and lifespan of polyethylene. WoodShield posts are a cost effective non-chemical option and many property owners have had WoodShield posts in the ground for up to five years. They are also ideal for organic growers and eco applications. The process creates a strong adhesive bond between the timber and the plastic sheath completely sealing the post, leaving no timber exposed. The post ends are protected with very thick end caps which enable the posts to be hydraulically “whacked” into the ground exactly as a standard timber post would be. | Website | Contact |

The gear mechanism in our lopper increases cutting power by enormously – which means we can make the handles shorter and lighter. This is a level of performance and quality that you can really only appreciate properly by exploring our tools. Don’t just take our word for it: see for yourself. Hold our tools and you’ll feel the quality in the shape, the weight and the balance. Our tools also demonstrate our longstanding belief in durability and economy.

David Low / Australia1010 / March 27, 2012 / 7:15:40 PM EST / 0 Comments
Revegetation is important not only in Australia but in many parts of the world. Australian native grasses are drought tolerant and years of scientific research have meant Native Seeds has been able to develop some specifically bred grasses suited to a wide range of particular uses. The key ingredient in getting a successful result is in weed control. Weeds are highly competitive with emerging native grass seedlings and need to be controlled in the early stages of establishment or poor results could occur. Some of the means of doing this are: sowing at high rates to provide more plants to compete with the weeds; timing the sowing so that it occurs at the optimum time for the establishment of the desired grass species; reducing the weed content in the soil by controlling weed growth on stockpiled soils; spraying weeds with suitable compounds (Pine Oil or Vinegar can work as organic options); allowing the site to grow a crop of weeds, spraying out those weeds as above, and then sowing the desired grass/grasses immediately. | Website | Contact |

We give a voice to the growing environmental challenges that face us and the emerging solutions showing the way to the future. And we educate and engage people about what they can do to help. Three key environmental issues impacting on South Australia are: GE crop risks include environmental contamination by cross-pollination of conventional crops and related weeds resulting in 'super-weeds' and loss of bio-diversity: Increased use of herbicides associated with herbicide resistant crops: Release of GE DNA into soil, possibly damaging soil fertility, potential gene transfer of gene switches to micro-organisms, plants and animals causing unpredictable gene expression. Some key issues are continued weed control on bush care sites and marine pest management. | Website | Contact|

The WA Forest Alliance (WAFA) provide an umbrella body for the many community environment organisations in Perth and throughout the South West that are concerned with forest conservation. Logging and burning spread weeds, feral animals and serious diseases like Phytophthora dieback, which threatens many native plant species. They also cause soil damage like erosion and can increase salinity. Despite government recognition, after years of community campaigning, that our unique coastal tuart forests and woodlands are in a dire state due to clearing for urban development, diseases and weeds, the government continues to approve new housing and infrastructure developments that destroy more and more of the little that remains. |Website | Contact |

Fiskars Australia

Hold our tools and you’ll feel the quality in the shape, the weight and the balance. Our tools also demonstrate our longstanding belief in durability and economy.

Native Seeds
Revegetation is important not only in Australia but in many parts of the world. Australian native grasses are drought tolerant and years of scientific research have meant Native Seeds has been able to develop some specifically bred grasses suited to a wide range of particular uses. The key ingredient in getting a successful result is in weed control. Weeds are highly competitive with emerging native grass seedlings and need to be controlled in the early stages of establishment or poor results could occur. Some of the means of doing this are: sowing at high rates to provide more plants to compete with the weeds; timing the sowing so that it occurs at the optimum time for the establishment of the desired grass species; reducing the weed content in the soil by controlling weed growth on stockpiled soils; spraying weeds with suitable compounds (Pine Oil or Vinegar can work as organic options); allowing the site to grow a crop of weeds, spraying out those weeds as above, and then sowing the desired grass/grasses immediately. | Website | Contact |

Soil Systems Australia
Sugarcane yields up to 201t/haTruly sustainable farming and water management in the future must be based on regenerating (or rebuilding) poor and unproductive soils. Soil Systems Australia was set up in September 1999 to provide practical advice for producers and companies interested in regenerative land management. Our company was founded on the principle that all activities on the land must protect the natural processes that produce stable soil humus, the most precious form of soil carbon. We have developed these regenerative processes in Australia on a wide variety of soil types in climates ranging from arid to tropical. We guide companies and producers who need assistance with project management, agronomy, horticulture, commercial and on-farm composting, organic consultancy, dairy production, waste water management (for rendering plants & abattoirs), establishing market gardens, education and soil surveys. | Website | Contact |

Native Seeds
Revegetation is important not only in Australia but in many parts of the world. Australian native grasses are drought tolerant and years of scientific research have meant Native Seeds has been able to develop some specifically bred grasses suited to a wide range of particular uses. The key ingredient in getting a successful result is in weed control. Weeds are highly competitive with emerging native grass seedlings and need to be controlled in the early stages of establishment or poor results could occur. Some of the means of doing this are: sowing at high rates to provide more plants to compete with the weeds; timing the sowing so that it occurs at the optimum time for the establishment of the desired grass species; reducing the weed content in the soil by controlling weed growth on stockpiled soils; spraying weeds with suitable compounds (Pine Oil or Vinegar can work as organic options); allowing the site to grow a crop of weeds, spraying out those weeds as above, and then sowing the desired grass/grasses immediately. | Website | Contact |
