The costs of feral pig impact on high-value sugarcane and horticultural enterprises in north Queensland can be considerable. Management of feral pigs in the area is problematic due to the large areas of inaccessible rainforest surrounding plantations, high rainfall and non-target issues which limit the potential of baiting. This project assessed the economics of a range of control strategies (particularly trapping) to reduce feral pig damage.
