Off-target spray drift costs the cotton industry millions

Off-target spray drift costs the cotton industry millions

By Amelia WilliamsJan. 13, 2016, 5:01 a.m. The Land

A WHOPPING 20 per cent of Australia’s cotton crop has been damaged from off target spray drift this season, costing the cotton industry $20 million to date.

Cotton Australia chief executive Adam Kay said all cotton growing regions in Australia have been affected by off target spray drift this season, with about 60,000 hectares reporting damage.

“I've been in the cotton industry for 30 years, and this is the worst year in memory for spray drift damage to cotton crops, so we are taking this issue extremely seriously,” he said.

Heavy rainfall spurred rapid weed growth across the country, prompting cropping farmers to spray their fallow country.
