Spray Notice - All Orchards

If you are a neighbour of one of our orchards, or a field worker, or anyone else who may be affected by our pest/disease management operations, please review the information below, and be vigilant to avoid any accidental harm. We use an integrated pest management program, and endeavor to only spray when necessary to maintain the commercial quality of our produce. We cannot provide exact times, or dates in advance of any sprays as it is often extremely weather dependent, and time critical to apply.  Our staff is trained to ensure drift is contained within our orchards vand that drift does not reach sensitive areas.  Monitoring spray drift as we spray to observe changes in wind direction and speed is essential to our spraying practices.  Please note early mornings, late evenings, or night spraying is sometimes required as generally those are the hours conducive to spraying due to lower wind speeds, lower temperatures, and higher humidity.  

You can expect the sprays below to be applied over the next 3-5 days based on the above conditions.

UPCOMING SPRAYS - June 26 - June 30, 2017

This coming week we will be applying an insecticide that cannot be applied in the heat, so expect sprays to go on between the hours of 6 PM and 9 AM.  Also, take note that this particular insecticide has an unpleasant smell.  All farms will be applying this spray to a portion of the orchard with the exception of our Glenmore and Belgo blocks.
