Abstract

SKELETON WEED—Australia's worst weed of cereal crops—was found for the first time in Western Australia last month.

The outbreak was reported to the Department of Agriculture by a Ballidu farmer who found an unknown weed on his property and suspected that it could be skeleton weed.

An immediate inspection was made and skeleton weed was found over about quarter of an acre in one paddock.
