Gorse: a subject for biological control in New Zealand

, : Gorse: a subject for biological control in New Zealand. New Zealand Journal of Experimental Agriculture 8(3/4): 321-330

Gorse (Ulex europaeus) is a major weed of agriculture and forestry in New Zealand, particularly in low fertility hill country soils where it competes effectively with newly planted trees and sown pasture, and forms extensive tracts of impenetrable scrub if left unchecked. Levels of natural control are negligible, and as the New Zealand climate is very favourable to its growth gorse grows larger and spreads more vigorously than in its native range of coastal and southern Europe.
