Kōrero: Weeds of agriculture

Gorse (1 o 3)


Gorse has invaded many thousands of hectares of farmland in New Zealand, and is easily the most widespread and costly brushweed. It rapidly colonises any bare ground, and seeds will survive in the ground for many years, ready to germinate when the soil is freshly disturbed. Gorse is controlled mainly by spraying with chemicals.
