Arrival of the Stinkwort. IN THE BIRCHIP DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Donald Times — 31 March 1916

Arrival of the Stinkwort. IN THE BIRCHIP DISTRICT.. The noxious weed stinkwort has i made its appearance in the Bjrchip j district, and steps have been taken by farmers and others interested in agricultural and pastoral pursuits to secure its eradication. It was said that the weed was growing around Mortou Plains, and, if so, the weed would quickly spread into the Wat cbem and Douald districts, for in South Australia it is known to spread with rapidity. In the sister State the weed, which is a native of the Mediterranean regions, has been most troublesome on neglected lands in the north and other parts. The plant is an annual, and reproduces by its abuudance of feathery seeds, which are carried by wind, water, and animals from one district to another. The weed is not eaten by cattle, but the sheep will tackle it when it is not too rank, and when feed is mighty scarce. However, it is known to be useless as a fodder, and is injurious to the constitution.

It is time we realised the seriousness of tlje situ atiou. " If we could walk amongst our enemy women we would 'find tliem working hard for the welfare of their soldiers.
