Crofton weed biological control

Want more information?

A new biological control agent for Crofton weed, the rust fungus Baeodromus eupatorii, was first introduced to Australia in June 2014. The fungus has since been extensively released across New South Wales in partnership with the community. Information about the program can be found here.

The release program received financial support in 2015 from the NSW Weeds Action Program administered by the Department of Primary Industries and in 2016 from the NSW Environmental Trust.
