During the 1980s and 1990s large-scale evaluation programs were undertaken in Queensland to identify legumes to improve the productivity of beef pastures. Although the programs were successful, there were concerns that some unpalatable legumes posed a threat to the production and conservation values of grasslands in northern Australia. A six-year MLA-funded program was undertaken by DPI&F, with support from James Cook University, CSIRO, DNRM and EPA, to identify and eradicate legumes of high weed potential before they began to spread from plant sites.
