Spraying Great Forest

This week Great Forest field has been sprayed for grass weed control at a rate of 400 grammes of chemical dissolved in 100 litres of water per hectare.

As ever we are subject to official regulations …
   the operator is on the national register of sprayer operators
   our pesticide records were checked this month
   every year the sprayer must have a safety check
   our chemical containers must be collected by a specialist waste contractor…

This week we have also been spreading fertiliser and still chasing those wretched pigeons off the oilseed rape crop.
