A key guiding principal of the Victorian Blackberry Taskforce is the concept that blackberry control is more than science.
A key guiding principal of the Victorian Blackberry Taskforce is the concept that blackberry control is more than science. That is, we recognise there is various established control methods to manage blackberry, however, blackberry remains an issues across parts of the landscape. Therefore, blackberry management is just as much a socio-economic issue as it is an issue of scientific management.
That said, we do continue to support innovation in terms of biological control and promote innovative approaches to blackberry management and wider land-use change.
We believe that through meaningful engagement with communities, together progress can be made in managing blackberry and also to begin to address other land management issues. At a state-wide level, we take pride in transparency and accountability in decision making, and accurately reflecting the on-ground reality that communities face in terms of pest management.
