Developing a blackberry management plan - Weeds Australia
Part 3 Developing a blackberry management plan Summary • The first step when developing a blackberry management plan is to assess, record and map the features of the blackberry infestation. • Use information from site assessments to identify priority areas for treatment. • The prioritisation process is the basis for setting goals that are realistic, have clear timeframes and can be measured. Often it is useful to have both short-term and long-term goals. • It is important to collate all the assessment and priority information into a blackberry management plan. • Monitor outcomes and adjust the plan if necessary. • Retreatment and rehabilitation are important to achieve ongoing control of blackberry infestations.
