Assess weed impact/distribution for prioritisation

The project objectives are to identify the scale and benchmark the prevalent weed issues as perceived by the industry. The project will deliver an online survey form for growers and industry advisors to collect perceived weed issues including spatial data. The project will deliver synthesised weed data by districts (distribution, severity, species) back to the industry. This is precursor work to a larger project that will collect unbiased weed distribution data - utilising aerial surveys and ground truthing to confirm the perceived issues acknowledged in the scoping online survey and their potential causes. Identifying the main weed issues that impact the industry in each district will help prioritise research investment into specific weed problems.
