This economic assessment by Ross McLeod in 2018 estimates weeds to impose an overall average cost of nearly $5 billion across Australia. Overall costs have increased by more than 20% over the 14 years since the Sinden et al (2004) study.2018
The aim of this report by S Csurhes and R Edwards was to list and describe non-indigenous terrestrial and aquatic plant species considered to have the following attributes – represent a threat to native terrestrial or aquatic plant communities, a localised distribution and vulnerable to eradication (including species that only exist as cultivated specimens).1998
This report by R.J. Adair & R.H.Groves is a review and development of a methodology.1998
The primary aim of this technical bulletin by By J.E. Ireson, J.T. Davies, D.A. Friend, R.J. Holloway, W.S. Chatterton, E.I. Van Putten and R.E.C. McFadyen was to provide a revised assessment of the cost of weeds to Tasmanian pastures and field crops as well as identifying the weeds that are having the most significant impact on Tasmanian agriculture. It also reviews the current status of all weed biological control programs that have been conducted in Tasmania against some of the major weeds and provides a case study of the successful biological control program on ragwort. The document should serve as a useful reference for those involved in weed control both within the state and nationally.
This report reviews existing work in community weed management, examining hours, money spent, weed control methods used, regions covered and geographic locations. It also identifies the advantages and limitations of using community groups for environmental weed management. It is interesting to note that the most successful community groups to date are those that receive appropriate support from the local agency with which they are working. It is critical for government agencies to provide experienced personnel to train and support groups that are supplying their time to control environmental weeds, an often tedious job.

This paper by DT Vere, RE Jones and GR Griffith presents a brief review of the methodology of production systems modelling and provides details of the farm and industry modelling methods adopted in the construction of the integrated models. Examples of the application of this modelling system are presented.1997 Weeds CRC Tech Series
Guides by Di Carpenter and Annabel Bowcher for the management of weeds in winter pulse crops, looking at the whole farm business and developing strategies involving a wide range of techniques. These publications provides an overview of all aspects of managing weeds during the pulse phase of crop rotation, including what pulse species to choose, weed impacts on pulse production, problem weed species by state, optimisation of the competitive ability of pulses against weed species and weed management using an integrated approach drawn from the suite of available chemical and cultural control methods.
NSW WeedWise contains over 300 weed profiles, describing their profile, control (including registered herbicide options) and biosecurity duty (under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015). This information is tailored to NSW only.NSW
