DEWNR will commence its third and final aerial boxthorn control program on Yorke Peninsula soon, with a target treatment area of 5000 hectares.
The program will include plants which may have survived earlier treatment and private and public land including high priority coastal areas in the Hundreds of Warrenben, Carribie, Para Wurlie and Coonarie.
Landholders are encouraged to contact DEWNR on 8841 3400 to prepare their own boxthorn control program. DEWNR are confident the combined programs will make a significant dent in the YP boxthorn population.
Landholders on Southern Yorke Peninsula may see the helicopter performing the aerial operation from early April.
