Potential Distribution of Black knapweed (Centaurea nigra) in Victoria (Nox)

This map of the potential distribution of Black knapweed has been produced from CLIMATEŽ modelling overlayed with:

Overlays used

Land Use:
Pasture irrigated
Pasture dryland
Broadacre cropping

Colours indicate possibility of Centaurea nigra infesting these areas
Red = Very High
Orange = High
Light Green = Medium
Dark Green = Likely
In the non-coloured areas the plant is unlikely to establish as the climate, soil or landuse is not presently suitable.
