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 and 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.  

In a few of our orchards we will be introducing a 'flagging' system to notify our neighbours of the toxicity levels of sprays being used on the orchard.

  • Green: Relatively Non-Toxic
  • Yellow: Slightly Toxic
  • Orange: Moderately Toxic
  • Red: Very Toxic (these products are never used at Coral Beach Farms)

UPCOMING SPRAYS - June 1-10

We are now at Pit Hardening stage.  At this stage we apply a growth regulator to enhance fruit quality.  This spray requires slow drying conditions and must be applied during cool weather.  This generally means spraying at night when temps are low and winds are calm.
