Controlling sifton bush
Slashing, physical removal and chaining will aid control if carried out between mid February and mid March. However, with its huge seed production and ability to establish on bare or infertile ground, sifton bush has spread into areas that are stressed by over-grazing or drought, and can therefore thrive to replace useful pastures.
