Invasive plants: New pasture plants pose weed risk

Driscoll, Don; Catford, Jane

Description

Many new plant varieties that are sold for livestock pasture pose a weed risk that jeopardizes their purpose — the sustainable intensification of agriculture — by increasing the environmental costs of food production. We urge governments to include potential environmental damage when screening new pasture varieties and to introduce a ‘polluter pays’ penalty system.
