Join Jeremy Bradley of Beechwood Biological Solutions and MidCoast Council's strategic weeds biosecurity officer Terry Inkson for an information packed morning to update you on developments in weed biocontrol, and give you details on sourcing and using biocontrol agents.

Jeremy will share his extensive experiences and learnings with Nigrospora oryzae fungal preparations as part of the holistic management of giant Parramatta grass and other weedy grasses, and findings from his ongoing biological research.

Terry will give an overview of weed biocontrol efforts in the region and ways that landholders and agencies can work together to improve the impact of biocontrols on environmental weeds.

Morning tea will be provided.
