Free Weed Control App

October 14, 2015

The free weed control app provides essential information about the control of weeds declared in South Australia under the Natural Resources Management Act 2004. It is a particulalty good resource for contractors or people working in large scale weed control.


The weed control app includes:

  • control recommendations for over 100 declared plant species
  • chemical and non-chemical treatments
  • information on the safe use of herbicides
  • colour photographs of each species for identification.

The weed control app provides information from the Weed Control Handbook for Declared Plants in South Australia. In addition app users can:

  • record the location of weeds
  • keep a personal log of control activities
  • phone or email regional Natural Resource officers
  • send photos and text of high risk weeds.

The app will be updated annually as chemical uses and plant declarations change.

The SA Weed Control app is produced by Biosecurity SA in partnership with the eight Natural Resource Management regions and is available from Google Play (for Andriod devices) or iTunes App Store (for Apple devices) or at
