Evaluation of presently applied mechanical and chemical control methods together with possible measures to reduce and prevent further dispersal of H. mantegazzianum and other alien species

In order to develop guidelines for the future management of H. mantegazzianum, a number of presently applied chemical and mechanical methods as well as new potential control measures were tested and expenses and time efforts were estimated. In addition, experiences gained from various control campaigns, research studies and management in practice have been evaluated with respect to best practice control methods and ecological and economic consequences. The evaluation of this data/information has resulted in a description of the most efficient, sustainable and cheapest control method applicable against H. mantegazzianum in Europe.
