Raising awareness of the broom (Cytisus scoparius (L.) Link) problem on the Barrington Tops, New South Wales

Bev Adams, PO Box 189, Scone, New South Wales 2337, Australia.


Awareness of broom as a problem on the Barrington Tops increased following action of the Barrington Tops Advisory Committee and the Barrington Tops Broom Council. This paper describes how publicity and public pressure generated by these groups led to the commencement of a biological control program for broom and illustrates how support can be generated for the management of environmental weeds.
