Weed Control: Prickly Acacia

DI-BAK-Acacia-logoPrickly Acacia is an exotic plant recognised as a Weed of National Significance (WoNS) due to its invasiveness and its ecological, economic and social impacts.

BHA is currently undertaking a large-scale efficacy trial to test Di-Bak Prickly Acacia against mature infestations of Prickly Acacia in Queensland. Results are expected in late 2015 and a submission to the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) will follow.
Di-Bak Prickly Acacia developed by BHA is made of pathogenic fungal isolates intended to induce the dieback in the prickly acacia and trigger a long term epidemic of disease in the tree population.
