About this weed. T. orientalis are originally from eastern and northern Australia, temperate and tropical Asia and New Zealand. It was introduced as a food, medicines, soil stabilisation, biomass, fibres and water treatment. T. orientalis is very similar to the native Western Australian species T. domingensis This is one of the best places to see Western Australian wildflower species, with an amazing amount of diversity. In fact, Lesueur National park includes just 10 percent of Western Australia's known flora. Some of the plant species you might see include Gastrolobium, Acacias, Hibbertias, Schenaultias, and Melaleucas

Alligator weed, Alternanthera philoxeroides (Martius) Grisebach, of the family Amaranthaceae, has become a weed in many countries outside of its natural range in South America. In Australia, it is classified as a weed of national significance because of its potential to devastate agricultural and natural ecosystems An Auburn University professor and researcher is one of the founding members of an international group of scientists and industry professionals that has launched an ambitious project aimed at improving understanding of the most intractable species of weeds in the world..

This weed was brought to Western Australia in 1990 as a fodder plant for salt-affected land. When it was recognised as weedy it was eradicated. It appeared in Tasmania as a contaminant of carrot seed in 1995, 1997 and 1998. All infestations have been eradicated and previously infested areas are checked annually In southwestern Western Australia it is found in areas of medium to high rainfall (ie where rainfall exceeds 400 mm per year). It is more reliant on moisture than the closely related stinkwort D. graveolens , which is a weed of grazing land and roadsides of much of southern Australia Urgent requests.

Weeds accumulate multiple resistance mechanisms through sequential selection and/or gene flow, with long-range and international transport of herbicide-resistant weeds proving to be a serious issue. Metabolic resistance mechanisms can confer resistance across multiple sites of action and even to herbicides not yet discovered The Australian story of farmer innovation in Conservation Agriculture reveals a complex interplay of policy, economics, science, and farming. Farmer experimentation with Conservation Agriculture began in the 1960's and has continued to this day where around 80%-90% of Australia's 23.5 million hectares of winter crops are now grown using Conservation Agriculture principles The company estimates this costs the Australian cropping sector about $3.3 billion annually. In the US, the annual cost of weeds is estimated at US$34.5 billion. Traditional farming practices to destroy weeds include mass universal application of herbicides, but this becomes a challenge with many weeds becoming resistant to the treatment , but it is faced with a daunting set of challenges: environmental damage caused by control practices, weed resistance to herbicides, accelerated rates of weed dispersal through global trade, and greater weed impacts due to changes in climate and land use
