You need this permit if you intend to possess, use, transport, grow or harvest a declared weed for display, scientific, commercial or other purpose. A declared weed is a plant that is to be controlled, eradicated or prevented from entering the Northern Territory. Although declared as weeds, some plants have value and a permit provides strict control and monitoring of their use.
Each permit will be subject to specific conditions. You may be required to lodge a bond that is sufficient to provide a security against costs and expenses that may be incurred to prevent the spread of a declared weed as a result of action taken under a permit.
