|Title:||Improving regional adoption of weed control: a case study||Contributor(s):||Berney, Peter (author); Sindel, Brian M (author) ; Coleman, Michael (author); Marshall, Graham R (author); Reeve, Ian (author); Kristiansen, Paul (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/12541||Abstract:||Effective control of invasive weeds such as serrated tussock ('Nassella trichotoma') requires collective action by land managers across the landscape. We explored the impediments to adoption of weed control practices amongst private and public land managers, and the potential of collective action programs to overcome these impediments. A case study approach was adopted, involving serrated tussock control in two contrasting grazing regions of NSW, the Northern Tablelands and the Southern Tablelands. Although there are important barriers to adoption of serrated tussock control practices, collective action has potential to improve adoption amongst public and private land managers alike. An effective collective action program requires trust and willingness to reciprocate to develop between participants. Existing landholder networks may be employed to ensure ongoing success over the longer term. Concurrent enforcement may be required so that that non-participants also attempt to control serrated tussock on their land.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||18th Australasian Weeds Conference: Developing Solutions to Evolving Weed Problems, Melbourne, Australia, 8th - 11th October, 2012||Conference Details:||18th Australasian Weeds Conference: Developing Solutions to Evolving Weed Problems, Melbourne, Australia, 8th - 11th October, 2012||Source of Publication:||18th Australasian Weeds Conference Proceedings, p. 170-173||Publisher:||Weed Society of Victoria Inc||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070308 Crop and Pasture Protection (Pests, Diseases and Weeds)||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830406 Sown Pastures (excl.
