Spraying pesticides

To protect crops from weeds, pests and diseases, farmers use agricultural pesticides and chemicals which can sometimes result in chemical spray drift. This is where the chemicals impact upon non-targeted stock, crops and land. Neighbouring properties may be affected if they have crops sensitive to damage, or are at risk of having residue on their organic produce.

The Department of Primary Industries website discusses legislation and what you should do is spray drift occurs, and don’t hesitate to contact our Health Services Department on 1300 368 333 if a situation arises.
