Non-Chemical Lantana Eradication
My husband and I have just bought 7 acres of land down on the south
coast of NSW (Australia) which has about an acre of Lantana on it. As
this is a pest plant in NSW, the Rural Land Protection Board has placed
an order for it's removal. They recommended a chemical called Grasson to
do it and were baffled when I asked for advice on alternative methods.
I really don't want to use chemicals but have had some trouble finding
information on alternative methods for this plant. Does anyone have any
experience with Lantana removal - physically digging it out or any other
method (can't think of one myself but then that's why I writing this I
guess!!). Any experience, advice, stories or information would be very
welcome. On the 'net I have been able to find plenty on propagating the
plant but nothing on eradicating it!
Please e-mail me directly if you wish and thanks for your help,
