Seasonal Weed Control at Stawell Quarry

Working with quarries

We're managing the weeds at the Stawell Quarry to ensure their product isn't contaminated and their site limits the spread of weeds.

The Stawell Quarry provides basalt stone for various projects across the region including roads and railway. Throughout the year Project Platypus deliver weed control to ensure weed contamination of their product is managed to limit the spread of weeds. Project Platypus have created a control plan for the business to manage annual grasses and broadleaf weeds are controlled throughout the year. Species like capeweed, thistle, wild mustard and annual grasses are controlled through the year.
