The Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) has approved an application by the Marlborough District Council to allow restricted aerial use of the herbicide Taskforce.
Taskforce can now also be used to control kangaroo grass in addition to Chilean needlegrass and nasella tussock in pasture.
To help users of Taskforce understand what they need to do when using Taskforce, the EPA has developed an information sheet.
The information sheet summarises the rules that need to be followed when people are applying Taskforce by aerial or ground-based methods. Advice about who needs to be notified before aerial application takes place and what records need to be kept and provided to the EPA is also provided.
For more information, please contact the EPA on 0800 376 234.
