With 'single knocks', 'double knocks' and residual herbicides, growers in the northern region are successfully fighting back against fleabane.. Fleabane is a wind-borne, surface-germinating weed that thrives in areas of low competition and which proliferated in the northern region as growers moved towards reduced and no-till farming... Fleabane proliferated in the northern region but has spread south and west as more growers adopt no-till and reduced-till farming...

Moving the main battle against fleabane to earlier in the season when plants are seedlings, rather than late spring and summer, is the key to improving control... New South Wales Department of Primary Industries senior weeds research scientist Dr Hanwen Wu says there are seven species of fleabane, but the three most common in southern Australia are flaxleaf, tall and Canadian fleabane... Fleabane has spread rapidly because: it can flower and set seed over an extended period of time; each plant can contain up to 110,000 seeds; seeds are easily dispersed by wind, surface water run-off and through water movement in irrigation channels and other waterways; there is no dormancy required for the seed to germinate...
