Impacts: 

reduced crop yield, devaluing wool and fleeces, may also outcompete other forage species, competes with native herbaceous and grass seedlings for moisture, nutrients and space , can help spread ground fires, and dead plants contribute to fire loads.

Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

Modern phytosanitary measures mean that long distance transport of E. cicutarium is less likely than it used to be, but inadvertent introduction through seeds attached to clothing may still occur. Seed could also be transmitted to new countries in legal imports of agricultural seed but again this should be prevented by regulation and inspections of seed imports.

Info Blurb: 

Competes with native herbaceous and grass seedlings for moisture, nutrients, and space. Dead plants contribute to fire loads. Inadvertent introduction through fruits attached to clothing, livestock.
