An important part of any weed control program is monitoring the response of weeds and desirable vegetation. By monitoring your program, you can determine which control methods have worked best, whether off-target damage has occurred and whether repeated or new treatments are needed. Monitoring can also be used to track progress and determine whether you are achieving your weed management goals.
A range of monitoring manuals have been developed which can help you to design and undertake your own monitoring. Techniques include photo points, mapping and measuring plant populations and coverage.
