Japanese Knotweed ~ Autumn 2018 Review

We have reported on this website in previous years the steps that have been taken since 2014 to eradicate the outbreak of Japanese Knotweed at Townsend Way, Bradpole.

June 2014 eradication begins

 

May 2018

A recent study on the control of Japanese Knotweed has been published by Swansea University in which they say that most information for people affected by the plant is largely based on anecdote.  Knotweed can be controlled using glyphosate at the right time of year, though this can usually take three to five years.

http://www.swansea.ac.uk/press-office/latest-research/swanseauniversity

In view of the long term nature of this eradication programme the affected area has now been fenced off.

In her Autumn 2018 report our Ecology consultant from Dorset Council basically said keep up the good work.

The full report can be found on our Council owned Green Spaces page  scroll down to the Townsend Way section.
