User's notes

This is a repeat observation which has been put into CNM because this is the worst year we have had for ALG in the last 20 years. Until recently the ACT Gov sprayed the ALG in HGW twice per year with glyphosate plus a pre-emergent but in the past couple of years they have only sprayed ALG once per years with glyphosate. The recent seasons may have something to do with frequency of ALG this year but it is a matter of concern.
