Threat abatement plan for five northern grasses: Submission

The NFF’s 21 November 2011 submission to the ‘Draft threat abatement plan to reduce the impacts on northern Australia by the five listed grasses’ highlights the concerns of our members in the seemingly inconsistent listing of five northern grasses. Of the five listed grasses, three have high production and economic values (gamba, olive hymenachne and para grass) while the remaining two (mission grass and annual mission grass) have no production values and are considered to have a negative impact on production and environmental values.
