Invasive weeds across the State are set to take a hit with an additional $1.5million in funding for the Weeds Action Program.
 
Minister for Primary Industries, Niall Blair says the extra funding would help prevent new weed species from gaining a foothold in NSW.
 
$12 million will support regional weeds programs in each Local Land Services region, as well as ten innovative state-wide projects focused on finding smarter ways to manage weeds.

Weeds continue to cost NSW almost $1.8 billion in lost agricultural production and control.
