Grant Background: The Advancing Pest Animal and Weed Control Solutions aims to research and develop innovative control solutions to improve the way established pest animals and weeds are managed.
Project applications must target invasive established pest animals or weed species that are not endemic to Australia or a particular part of Australia.
The outcomes of the grant round are to:
- Advance a range of breakthrough control solutions that challenge traditional approaches to managing pest animals and weeds to enable better outcomes.
- Deliver innovations that improve existing established pest animals and weeds control methods or tools, as well as improved detection and monitoring methods.
- Further research into, and development of, new and enhanced ‘farm ready’ pest animals and weeds control tools to increase uptake and accessibility of these tools by farmers and land managers.
