PestWeb™ is a free tool to assist New Zealand farmers and agricultural professionals in decision-making regarding weed and pest identification, biology, impact and management.

PestWeb contains a number of New Zealand pasture weeds and pests, which have been chosen in consultation with key farming, industry and research personnel. We are adding more weeds and pests to PestWeb.

PestWeb covers four main categories:

Biology

the weed or pest life-cycle and where it is found

Impact

how the weed or pest affects your crops, pasture and livestock

Control

different methods used to control the weed or pest

Identification

use the identify tab to identify a weed, pest or its damage
