There are two support programs for landholders at the moment:
The first sponsored by Weeds Section whereby through our (Bushfires NT) network we provide gifted poison and have a number of spray units able to loaned for a short period (mainly because of demand) to landholders who are willing to make a difference.
The other program is run by Coomalie Council and allows landholders to obtain assistance with spraying by way of gifted poison and in case they require assistance to actually spray the gamba using subsidised contract labour.

Some BFNT volunteers are also actively involved in reducing fuel loads, and hence bushfire hazards, by spraying gamba and mission grasses on NT Government lands in their local areas using herbicides supplied by Bushfires NT.
