An unfortunate side effect of a drought breaking is usually an increase in the presence of new and existing weeds on a property. These weeds have the potential to cause further economic and production losses to an already drought-impacted farming enterprise.
New weeds can decrease productivity through competition with pastures, poison stock, and increase weed control costs significantly.
