disturbed, bare areas along roadsides and heavily stocked
areas around yards and watering points. Par thenium can
also colonise brigalow, gidgee and sof twood scrub soils.
Its presence reduces the reliability of improved pasture
establishment and reduces pasture production potential.
Par thenium is also a health problem as contact...
