Invasive plants or weeds are a serious problem throughout Australia not only a threat to Australia’s natural environment but also have a major economic impact to our primary production industries. They cause damage to natural landscapes, agricultural lands, water ways and coastal areas.
The most cost effective way to manage weeds is firstly through weed prevention but once weeds have taken hold, early detection and eradication are critical to reduce their impact.
Gray’s Farm Friends can offer control programs which include seasonal spraying with the use of herbicides, slashing, and competition planting in pastures or a combination approach to out compete the weeds. Let our team help to improve the look and carry capacity of your property with custom designed weed control and pasture improvement programs.

Gray’s Farm Friends use the direct drill process of sowing with minimal tillage, this can be used to over sow existing pastures, renewal of pasture following spraying or to bulk up old pastures. One of the many advantage of direct drilling maintains organic matter retention and the recycling of nutrients in the soil and decreases the chance of soil erosion which can be a disadvantage with other methods of pasture establishment.
Gray’s Farm Friends are able to distribute either Granular or liquid fertilisers via Boomspray, ATV Spreader or Direct Drill Seeder.
The application of fertiliser may assist with the increase in soil nutritional quality and therefore assist in increased crop yield and pasture productivity.
