As the majority of environmental weeds are not listed under their species names on herbicide registration, an off-label permit has been approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) to assist the department, local government, environmental groups and persons generally in managing these pest plants.
Herbicides have been approved for use against a large variety of environmental weeds. It is a requirement that all persons using products covered by this off-label permit comply with the details and conditions listed in the permit.
