‘Innovation in Weed Management’ with Dr David Low
Monash University environmental scientist and The Weed’s Network founder, Dr David Low, is passionate about a sustainable, viable and creative future in our relationship with weeds.
Dr Low believes that through a spirit of willing exploration we can foster ways to better understand weeds, so they become a resource we can manage with environment and future generations in mind.
Dr Low recently shared the stage with Allan Savory (Holistic Management) and Major General Michael Jeffery (Advocate for Soil Health) at the ‘Day After Tomorrow’ conference where he presented ‘ Making Money from Weeds’.
