Skeleton Weed Spreads Alarms

12 March 1954 The Land 

Skeleton weed shows an alarming increase in the Tumut-Batlow distracts, reports the local district agronomist, Mr. F. J. Nicholson.

It is particularly active on land that has been intensively cultivated for the past 20- 30 years.  

He says the solution is to use the area, for pasture. This both controls the weed, and increases fertility.
