I K Caldwell is committed to ensuring the safety and well being of its farming communities. With summer spraying requirements not too far away it is essential everyone is aware of their legal requirements and obligations when it comes to safe ...speaying practices.

Off-target spray drift is a significant issue for summer cropping in Australia, causing injury and economic damage to a range of crops and the environment. It is important that chemical users "keep the spray on the weeds" not only from an efficacy standpoint but also to prevent off-target injury to crops.

Spraying agricultural chemicals, whether from the ground or the air, needs to be properly planned and carefully monitored and executed, to maximise effectiveness and to minimise the risk of off-target chemical movement.

The environmental conditions in summer are conducive to inversion conditions which can lead to large plumes of chemicals moving considerable distances off-target. Many of the causes of off-target spray drift are a result of:

• Poor equipment set up
• Product selection of high volatility products
• Application in environmental conditions which are not suitable

For further info visit the I K Caldwell website or talk to your local IKC agronomy team member.

Today is Remembrance Day, a day of national commemoration. On this day at 11am, Australians pause in silence for a minute to remember the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who lost their lives while serving Australia and its allies in wars,... conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

In 1918 following World War II, Australia made a promise never to forget the service and sacrifice of 416,000 Australians who enlisted and over 60,000 who died. For over 100 years, we still keep this promise.

Remember to remember.
