Delivery of best weed management practices for meat sheep producers
Weeds are a major impediment to the production of quality sheep meat through their effects on the quality and quantity of the pasture resource base, physical animal injury and plant toxins consumed in the grazing process. Recent research by the CRC for Weed Management Systems and other agencies has advanced the science of weed management in sheep-grazed pastures, but adoption of integrated strategies lags well behind technology. The Project builds on work by the pastures program of the CRC, SGS activities and prior best practice management (BPM or BMP) research by uniquely obtaining and validating a producer perspective on the integration and implementation of best weed management practices for lamb and sheep meat production in Australia.
The Project involves six major activities:
1. ) Key informant interviews and pilot survey
2. ) National producer perspective survey
3. ) Respondent interviews and on-farm visits
4. ) Regional focus group meetings
5. ) On-farm monitoring and replicated experiments
6. ) Feedback to regions .
