Sportsgrounds - Spraying for Bindii and Broad-leafed Weeds

All sportsgrounds within Willoughby City Council will be sprayed according to the Pesticide Use Notification Plan from August to November 2018, weather permitting.

Product being used as required: Spearhead, Acelapryn, Tribute and Penmag 

These chemicals are for selective control of bindii and broad-leafed weeds and do not accumulate in the environment, requiring very low application rates of the active ingredient compared to other common selective herbicides making it the product of choice for use in public spaces (eg. sportsfields and recreational parks).

For more information please contact: Council’s Recreation Assets Team Leader on 9777 1000.

Intended start date: August 2018

Estimated date of completion: November 2018 (weather permitting)
