A field comparison of strategies for the control of Chilean needle grass in Hawke's Bay

Management strategies to control Stipa neesiana (Chilean needle grass) in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand, were initiated in October 1994 and comprised two re-grassing regimes using the competitive pasture species Dactylis glomerata (cocksfoot), combined with lax grazing using sheep or young cattle, no attempted management, and forestry. N. neesiana and D. glomerata densities were assessed by examining 50 mm turf cores taken annually from 1994, and from the forestry site since 1997.
