Australia: New ‘one stop shop’ for cactus control

Management of prickly invasive cacti has received a boost with a new comprehensive manual now available in South Australia.

The Managing Opuntioid Cacti in Australia manual is a step by step guide aimed at assisting anyone with an interest in managing the prickly pests, including land owners, community groups, environmentalists, government agencies and volunteers.

The manual was developed as a joint initiative of the Department of Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) and the Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, with supporting funding from the Australian Government.
