Weed Classifications

Each catchment management area in Victoria classifies weed species in a hierarchy of increasing importance. These classifications are designed to give new and emergent weeds a higher priority in each CMA to stop these species from becoming established and therefore not eradicable. The list of species and their classifications are determined through a state wide list of designated noxious plants with the classification of weed species recommended through the local catchment management authority level except for species of state importance (see state prohibited weeds). Species are classified depending on their invasiveness potential, distribution and environmental and economic impact.

In the state of Victoria, declared noxious plants are grouped into one of four classifications.
