In the second of our invasive plant webinars, we focus on Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed.
Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed are widespread invasive plants in the UK, Ireland, Europe and North America, spreading rapidly by seed. These species cause negative ecological and socioeconomic impacts and in the case of Giant Hogweed, it is also toxic to humans and livestock.
This webinar explores the biology and ecology of Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed, highlighting how and why they have spread so successfully, but also identifying weak points that can be exploited for their effective management. Using Advanced Invasives exclusive commercial field trial research and unique case studies, this webinar demonstrates how better understanding of these species can be practically applied to deliver effective long term control and management, using less herbicide and labour.
COMING SOON: Part 3 - Managing Woody Invasive Plants, will be on 21st May at 11am, keep an eye out for registration information
