Nassella tussock (Nassella trichotoma) occurs most frequently in drought-prone grasslands and river beds in several areas of New Zealand, and has been a long-standing problem in North Canterbury. Methods of control have included grubbing and spraying. Here, members of the North Canterbury Nassella Tussock Board inspect the effects of spraying in 1970.
