Wasting time, money and chemicals on large infestations?
Don’t have a big enough spray unit? Or the time to spray?
Sick of looking at blackberry invasions and/or dead canes?
The field day will showcase:
• A bobcat/mulcher in action removing- large live infestation in steep country- dead canes in steep country and open paddocks- chat with the operator and inspect the results
• Reducing chemical usage for on-going suppression
• Biological controls - how do we drive the agenda?
• Helicopter spraying of blackberries- the do’s & don’t- chat with the pilot on how to meet legal requirement and protect native vegetation- follow-up works with aerial seeding & fertilizing
This is a joint project between to Mitta to Murray Blackberry Action Group and the North East CMA through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
