ane needle grass (Nassella hyalina (Nees) Barkworth) is perennial, exotic, unpalatable weedy grass from South America threatening critically endangered grasslands within Victorian Basalt Plains in Victoria. Recent advances in weed management now place greater emphasis on eradication of small manageable ‘locally eradicable’ weed populations before their incursions are beyond eradication. A key component of weed eradication is destroying or controlling the weed seed bank.
