Reports of spray drift damage to cotton

The Australian Pesticide & Veterinary Medicine Authority (APVMA) has received reports of herbicide damage to cotton crops this season, as well as isolated reports of damage to vineyards, possibly due to applying herbicides when surface temperature inversion conditions are present. The APVMA is not taking specific regulatory action at this time. However, given the adverse experiences being reported, we are reminding people to read product labels carefully and apply chemicals according to the prevailing conditions. More information, is available on the APVMA website.
