Attempt today to eradicate aquatic weed on NSW north coast

A highly invasive and destructive aquatic weed has been found on a property on the NSW North Coast for the first time in 15 years. The Senegal tea plant is a declared weed in most states, except Victoria and the Northern Territory, and is on the National Alert List for Environmental Weeds. The Mullumbimby landholder thought the noxious plant could have been another aquatic pest, the alligator weed, because its flower looks similar.
