MyWeedWatcher is part of a suite of pest surveillance applications, developed by DAFWA. They have been developed to support industry and the community defend Western Australia’s agriculture industries and the natural environment from unusual or suspected exotic pests and diseases.

The information gathered through MyWeedWatcher will be used to help Community Groups, Local Biosecurity Groups, and DAFWA make more informed management decisions on weeds of interest in the State. In addition, users help to maintain Australia’s pest-free status, support farm biosecurity and become participants in a new monitoring and surveillance community.

Weed surveys and reports can be made within the MyWeedWatcher application or on-line. Reports made and weed maps can be viewed on an online map.

The MyWeedWatcher app is part of the Boosting Biosecurity Defences project, made possible by Royalties for Regions.
