The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries have developed a new dual herbicide sprayer in response to reef regulations.
The new sprayer can apply two different herbicides at the same time ie. residuals banded along the row and knockdowns in the interspace. This greatly reduces the amount of PSII residual products applied, which can save time, money and effort as well as being a benefit to water quality runoff.
This equipment is also eligible for funding through the Reef Trust 3 Water Quality Grants (current round 2 is open till 27 April).
