Robert Teng hosted a visit today from Professor Danfeng Huang and Rui Zhang from Shanghai Jiao Tong University along with UNSW doctoral student, Yun Ye. Professor Huang is a group leader of horticulture in the School of Agriculture and Biology.
Note the extent of weed coverage on the third allotment which is now managed by the Cemetery Trust. There is extensive coverage of Pampas Grass and Castor Oil Plant which are class 4 weeds under the Noxious Weeds Act 1993 in Randwick Municipality. This problem could be solved if Crown Lands leased the area to Robert Teng for agriculture.
Class 4 noxious weeds are plants that pose a threat to primary production, the environment or human health, are widely distributed in an area to which the order applies and are likely to spread in the area or to another area.
