More than 1200 cannabis plants valued about $2.5 million have been seized by police during raids in northern NSW.
The plants were found in bushland around Lillian Rock, Barkers Vale, Rappville and Woodburn during the latest round of the cannabis eradication program (CEP), which ran from Monday to Wednesday, police said.
More than $4 million of cannabis was found and destroyed after similar searches in the first week of February.
"The CEP has been running since the mid-1980s and, to date, has prevented cannabis with an estimated potential street value of more than $250 million reaching NSW streets," police said in a statement.
"The CEP is generally operational during cannabis-growing season, which stretches from the late spring through summer and into early autumn."
The drug squad, dog unit, aviation support branch and local police were involved in the raids.
More busts will take place in the coming months.
